Dec-04-05  lopium: I can't understand the comment "Nxd5 is better." Because if Nxd5, there's the white bishop and white knight to take the black knight in d5, whcih has only his Queen as protector, not enough, though. Unless I don't see a special move for black.... Well I don't see.
Dec-04-05  mymt: <lopium> I think he means 6.Nxd5 is better than 6.exd5 c6 7.dxc6 Nxc6 which just helps Black develope his pieces.After 6.Nxd5 Nxd5 7.exd5 White can support the pawn on d5 with c4 and/or Nc3.
Dec-04-05  sneaky pete: <lopium> The note refers to white's 6th move: "6.Nxd5 .. is better".

On white's 5th move 5 Albin comments: "Kt to R4 is the usual and best move in this position", so that's 5.Na4 .. (not 5.Nh3 ..).

Dec-04-05  lopium: Ah true, I'm sorry, I misunderstood the comment for 1/2 move. Thanksxz for you two.
