5.a3, 5.Nbd2 and 5.g3 are all better for White. How could I possibly choose just one?  Grin

What if most people vote for one thing as objectively best and they're objectively wrong? How can a vote on objective truth make sense? Let's Vote for the objective value of a quantity which starts at 100%, increases by 20% then decrease by 20%... No, let's just put everyone on huge scales and see how much flesh is in favor of each number. The winner is...100%! From now on that is what I will say, secure in the knowledge that it is the objectively best reply according to weighty criteria.

By the way, I play Nbd2 because it fits my style--I'm 96% sure.
