  beenthere240: this was a wild one, blacks 5th move looks so horrible, but he certainly didn't get punished.
Sep-17-04  sneaky pete: <beenthere240> 5... Bd6 sure looks horrible, but may be as playable as other moves. Pillsbury played it and recently Grischuk and Ivan Sokolov did so. Jobava vs Grischuk, 2003; Short vs I Sokolov, 2004; Van der Wiel vs I Sokolov, 2004.
Sep-17-04  Vischer: 5...Bd6 isn't a horrible move, it is the stoneware defense and is similar to 4...Bd6 in the four knights or 4...Bd6 in the larsen. Black continues with 0-0, Re8, and Bf8 getting the good setup of ♔♗♖
