Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-16-05  Vavilov: Why does black play 10 ... c6 and invite 11 Nc7+, and why does white refuse this fork? I see that black threatens 11 ... Kd8 12 Nxa8 Qxe5 followed by 13 ... Bb4+, but can't white play 13 f2 or 13 Qb3? What am I missing?
Mar-16-05  Saruman: <Vavilov> It seems to me that after 11.Nc7+ Kd8 12.Nxa8 Qxe5 13.Qb3!? Qb8 14.Nb6 axb6 15.Qxb6 Qe5 black has atleast an even game. Whereas the two bishops are very strong.
Dec-28-06  who: <saruman> white should play 11.Nc7+ Kd8 12.f4! and then white wins.
Oct-20-10  nolaviking: Anyone knows why 5. Qd5 is never played? (I dont find this move in any of the chessbases).
Oct-20-10  HSOL: nolaviking:
I guess: Black has sacked a pawn to get ahead in development and force white on the defensive if white tries to hold on to the pawn, so it would be unthematical to go further behind in development with Qd5.

Also, it invites the obvious Nb4 threatening the queen where black get to develop the bishop to c5 despite white's efforts. Although 5.- d6 might be stronger. Example 6.exd6 Bxd6 7.Bxd6 Qf6
