  blazerdoodle: What's wrong with 6...d5?
Oct-09-10  krippp: <blazerdoodle> Well, 1st:

Black already played <4..d6>, thus <6..d5> would constitute a waste of time,

and 2nd:
Black doesn't needlessly want to open up the position, as he'd remain behind a tempo with his King still in the center; The appeal of <6..d5> lowers significantly, when you consider that after


Black's most "obvious" move,

<7..Nxd5>, is poison due to:

<8.Nxf7 Kxf7

You can check out the following games, for some illustration on what happens if Black tries to hold onto the Knight with <Ke6>:
