  Nightsurfer: The early foray by Black Knight right into the center, namely 6. ... Ne4! and thus boldly seeking confrontation with White Nc3, has got new support in the last decades of the 20th century, please compare B Koester vs R Gralla, 1973 and S Amiri vs R Rezaei, 1992 , and at the beginning of the 3rd millennium, please replay Deep Fritz vs Kramnik, 2002 (though in the latter case the Swing of Horse has been executed one move later, namely with 7. ... Ne4 after the foregoing 6.0-0 0-0 7.Nc3 ...).
