Jul-10-14  jerseybob: White's 10.dc,leaving him with a weakling on c5, can't be good. 10.e3 looks much more solid, but as in their 1949 game, Mikenas doesn't "do solid", and he pays the same price.

  OhioChessFan: 10. d5 would be okay also. White had a strange aversion to exchanging Queens. His last refusal to do so was the losing move, 32. Qa8+
Jul-11-14  jerseybob: OhioChessFan: Is 10.d5 a known line? After 10..Bc3 11.Bh6,Nb4 what comes next?

  OhioChessFan: I am about the last person on the site to ask about Openings. I used Opening Explorer to find what White played on his 10th move in this variation:

10. e3 46 games
10. Be3 31 games
10. dxc5 16 games
10. d5 7 games
10. Rb1 5 games
10. Bb2 3 games
10. a4 1 game
10. Ba3 1 game

10. d5 Bxc3 11. Bh6 Nb4 12. Rc1 and Black is in a bit of trouble. The Knight is exposed, the c5 Pawn is a goner, and Black is undeveloped.
