  Domdaniel: Black's position collapses with alarming speed. Simon Williams in the book 'Dangerous Weapons: The Dutch' commented that this result effectively refutes the 9...Bf6 line, and suggests 9...Nxc3 instead.

  perfidious: <Dom> What does Williams propose after the immediate 9....Nxc3 10.Bxc3 instead, as 10....Bf6 11.Qc2 is a transposition to the game continuation, which indeed looks slightly and annoyingly better for White? The only way to avoid e4 and a pleasant edge for White is to revert to a Stonewall-while the loss of tempo is probably not significant in this close position, Black's remaining pieces do not coordinate well with that structure.

This variation has some similarity to Alekhine's line in the Classical(6....Ne4), qv H Ree vs Bronstein, 1977; but Williams committed himself to ....d6 very early on here, which is either deferred or omitted altogether in favour of ....d5, as Bronstein played.
