  patzer2: The line in this game, with the moves 4...e6 and 5...Bc5, is given as leading to a slight black advantage by Kasparov and Keene in BCO. However, they suggest white may be able to improve with 5. Bc4! as in Matulovic-Socco, Italy, 1955. Also, instead of playing the dubious 8. Bg5?!, white can improve with the interesting possibilities 8. Na4!? or 8. Bf4!? or 8. e5!?, each leading to unclear but roughly equal positions according to Flesch.
