  WTHarvey: Here are some winning combinations from Slav Dutch miniatures: http://www.wtharvey.com/d18.html
Mar-09-09  Method B: I have a question about move order in the following position.

What's the point in delaying castling here and simply develop the b8 knight to d7?

Is there any clear strategical difference in ideas between 8...0-0 and 8...Nbd7?

Mar-09-09  FHBradley: At least part of the point lies in the fact that 8... Nbd7 allows 9 Qb3, after which black cannot really avoid a draw: 9...a5 10 Na2, whereas after 8 ... 0-0 9 Qb3 black can play 9... Qe7. On the other hand, delaying castling is useful in some variations, a possibility that black obviously does not have if s/he chooses 8...0-0
