Sep-30-11  Hesam7: Extremely poor opening play from Black:

<5. ... d6?!> wrong move order, he first has to play 5. ... h6 6. Bh4 and then 6. ... d6. But the more ambitious option of course is to play 5. ... h6 6. Bh4 b5!?

<6. ... Qe7?> in Black's chosen set up he should not allow White to recapture with the knight. 6. ... Bxc3 7. bxc3 h6 8. Bh4 e5
