  FSR: Instead of 5...dxc3?, 5...Na5! is correct, when Black is fine. White's best is 6.Qxd4, giving up the bishop pair, but it's certainly nothing to write home about; IMO Black is already better.

In the game continuation, instead of 6...d6??, 6...Nh6! 7.Bxh6 0-0! is correct, when Black actually has a playable game. After that, the natural 8.Bc1?! (the only way to both save the bishop and avoid ...cxb2 winning the rook) is strongly met by 8...Nb4! and now White either has to allow the knight fork at c2 or play 9.Qd1 c2 (forking knight and queen) and Black is fine.

Jul-14-08  cardioblack: FSR, such a great comment and I see what happened in your followup but I wouldn't choose 8. Bc1 but instead 8.Bxg7. In white's shoes, I'd want to keep my aggressive front. I'd also be able to stop a 8...cxb2 with 9.Bxb2.

If 8...Kxg7 I would 9. Nxb3.

Who knows what may happen afterward but your defense against the potential checkmate is great!

Mar-17-09  WhiteRook48: 6...d6??? is crazy. 6...Nh6 is much better
Jun-02-09  WhiteRook48: in addition to 1. e4??
Sep-11-09  WhiteRook48: 7, 0-0! would be clever

  GrahamClayton: Is 8. ♘xc3 gxh6 advantageous for White? He has a lead in development, and the Black pawn structure has been compromised.

  fredthebear: 6...Nh6 keeps Black in the game.
