Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-02-05  who: Why would someone play 5.Na4?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Eggman: The idea behind the queer-looking 5.♘a4 seems to be to get in the tempo-gaining thrust e4 without allowing Black to play the tempo-saving exchange ...Nxc3. Also, the Knight on a4 restrains Black's advance ...c5, by which Black seeks to attack White's formidable center. In certain variations White's Knight may also move to c5, where it already has the support of the pawn d4.
Mar-21-06  who: As a result thought, white never gets the space gaining e4 in and his white stays misplaced for quite some time. Not to mention that spending a tempo so that you may get back the tempo later doesn't seem like good reasoning. But it seems certain that you are right about the reason.

  FSR: Correct was 6.Nc3! (instead of 6.Nf3?!) Nd5! 7.Na4! Nf6! 8.Nc3! 1/2-1/2, Malmqvist-Miskulin, Jonkoping 1998 :-)

  whiteshark: 8.Bf4 looks queer. I'd prefer solid development with 8.Bg2 0-0 9.0-0 etc
