[quote author=ArKheiN link=1204340333/0#2 date=1210857399]bob000, after Bronstein's 5.Bb5, do you mean an ending after the move 5..Nc6? 5..Nc6 might be ok, but I recommand 5..a6! with a good game for Black. I don't know what IM Greet recommands in his last book, but I would not suprised if he recommanded 5..a6 too.

I agree that 5...a6 is fine for Black, but due to spatial constraints I decided to focus on 5...Nc6 as I consider it an even more straightforward equaliser; in fact, it is often Black who has chances to be better in the ending thanks to the bishop pair).

IMO White should definitely be playing 5.e5 or 5.Nc3 if he is looking for an advantage.

Why do you believe that 7.Qb3 (main move is 7.Qe4) is better for White? 7..e6 and 7..Nc6 seems both playable, more practice is needed. 7.Qb3 is not a bad move but is it really better for White?

Nothing has meaning or value other than the meaning and value that you give it.

Does black have a viable alternative to going into an endgame after Nc6?
