Well, if Houdini 3 says a variation is good, it must be, right?  Wink

Or 4.d4.
3. ...e5 is the move that deserves a "?", not 3. c3. Couldn't you or Harry figure this one out ?

I played the following game against Houdini 3. Why isn't Black just better after 6...d5!

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.c3? e5 4.Bc4 Be7 5.h3 (Houdini's choice; I'd never play it) Nf6 6.d3 d5! =/+


Of course, 5.d4 is the move.  Wink
