I do some more work.

Great to see the variation being taken care of.

So long,

Some points:

1) This thread belongs in 'Daring Defences to 1.d4', not under 'd-Pawn Specials', which generally refers to White's alternatives to 1.d4 Nf6/d5 2.c4. If you want it moved, you can ask one of the moderators to move it.

2) There are already some quite recent threads on the Tango - a search for 'Tango' should reveal some results. I found the following threads:

Black Knight's Tango (A50)

Hello,

    It sure seem the right place to discuss the black knight's tango opening. Maybe the reputation is bad on account of the following :

Karpov,A (2692) - Llobel Cortell,E (2388) [A50]
Manises exh m1 10' Manises (1.1), 14.06.2001

1.d4 Pf6 2.c4 Pc6 3.Pc3 e5 4.d5 Pe7 5.e4 Pg6 6.Le3 Lb4 7.f3 Lxc3+ 8.bxc3 d6 9.Dd2 Pd7 10.h4 h6 11.g3 b6 12.Ph3 Pc5 13.Pf2 Dd7 14.Tb1 a5 15.f4 exf4 16.gxf4 De7 17.Lxc5 bxc5 18.h5 Pf8 19.Tg1 f6 20.Ld3 Pd7 21.De2 La6 22.Pg4 Pb6 23.Pe3 Lc8 24.Dg2 Tg8 25.Dg6+ Kd8 26.Kd2 Ld7 27.Dh7 Df8 28.Tg2 Kc8 29.Tbg1 Kb7 30.Txg7 Th8 31.Dg6 Le8 32.Df5 Td8 33.De6 Lxh5 34.Pf5 Pc8 35.e5 fxe5 36.fxe5 De8 37.Tb1+ Ka8 38.Txc7 Dxe6 39.dxe6 dxe5 40.Txc5 e4 41.Pd4 Txd4 42.cxd4 exd3 43.Txh5 1-0

I just want to make sure I have not miss something decadent as my base dates from 2005. If, by chance there would be top games, I am waiting to see them. Comments are welcome.

Anyhow, after : 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 Nc6 3.Nc3 e5 4.d5 Ne7 5.e4 Ng6 6.Be3 (a natural move) Bb4 7.f3 black has two options :

a) 7....Bxc3+ working on the doubled pawns or
b) 7....d6 followed by ...Nd7 and ...Bc5 working on the dark squares.

Can we say we have (up to move seven by white) a main line?

Since it looks so natural and strong I would like anyone sharing an improve version against the Tango. So odd, only one line against it?
And even if it is good, I like to have options.
