Isn't that the standard way Black plays? Not sure it is very unbalanced. Solid yes.

Black usually plays Bf6 right? I don't follow top level games too closely so I can't say for sure.

This line, which has been played a number of times by Aronian, seems to lead to more unbalanced positions than usually in the 5.Re1 Anti-Berlin. Is this a good way for black to play for a win?
I mean the line 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6 4.O-O Nxe4 5.Re1 Nd6 6.Nxe5 Be7 7.Bf1 Nxe5 8.Rxe5 O-O 9.d4 Ne8.
