<KingG: This kind of game shows why the old 7...Be6 is innacurate, and 7...Be7 is almost always played these days.>

Very good point.

Modern theory says that 7 ... ♗c8-e6?! is a major inaccuracy, due to the continuation played in the game, 8 f2-f4! ♕d8-c7 g2-g4 and Black is already under serious pressure.

8 f2-f4! ♕d8-c7 g2-g4

Jul-23-09  Hesam7: What is wrong 8...exf4 9.Bxf4 Nc6 ? It looks much better than 8...Qc7 9.g4 exf4.
