May-01-05  thesonicvision: 7...Nc6?
May-01-05  chessboyhaha: Why 7...Nc6? The Knight is Mysplaced! Why play Nc6? Someone to explain to me?
May-01-05  ajile: 7...Nc6 invites White to take the B7 pawn. But then White looks to have problems after ...Nb4. I think 7.Qb3 is all wrong anyways. If he plays Qb3 then he has to take the B pawn because that's the only point to that move. Better to play 7. a3 and then follow up with b4 for white and exploit the open c file. White also has the potential (if allowed) to get his Knight into b5. An early Bd3 or Nh3/Nh4 by white is also good to trade off black's white bishop.
