Here is an exampel where white makes a mistake with 9.f3 and black gets an advantage.

Anyway, my question is really do other people find this a little odd? And what do White players enjoy playing against this line?

I think 7.Qc2 f5 8.Nh3 d6 9.f3 Nf6 10.e3 e5 11.dxe5 dxe5 12.Be2 is considered white's most promising option, but black's position looks perfectly playable to me as he managed to play e5

8.e3 b6 9.Ne2 Bb7 10.f3 looks like a decent alternative

Actually, the Zurich in passning mentioning was not very good either. Unless I missrember he gave about 2 real mainline moves and after that black diverts from both the absolute mainline and also from a sharp pawn sac variation. He also verbally mentioned a other line  well but that was is, no analys nor anything. And Zurich is still an importent variation since I can be reached from Nimzo Qc2, Nimzo Nf3, Bogo Indian and Tango.

Am I going mad or does this Chessbase DVD really not cover the line 4 Qc2 0-0 5 a3 (Kasimdzhanov's recommendation) Bxc3 6 Qxc3 Ne4 and ...f5 (the Dutch variation)? Struggling to see how this didn't even get a mention. It must be more important that the Zurich variation which got a passing mention at least.

Anyway, my question is really do other people find this a little odd? And what do White players enjoy playing against this line?
