@edschillebeeckx,

Sorry but could not resist: Are related to the famous Catholic theologian Edward Schillebeeckx? Long-time admirer/fan of the latter.

More challenging?  It looks commendably strong. h3, on the other hand, does not. What was he afraid of, Bc8 and Bg4?  If Nxe4 is the mainline after 7. c3, then it's got to be fine here. 8. Re1 doesn't look any great shakes when you end up with a nice Bishop pair.

I had this played against me today:

1.. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6 4. Ba4 Nf6 5. O-O b5 6. Bb3 Bb7 7. h3

I thought for a bit, a decided to take on e4.  Play continued:

7. ... Nxe4 8. Qe2 d5 9. d3 Nc5 10. Nxe5 Nd4

This looks OK for black - but is there anything more challenging?  Or did I play this OK?
