  Sneaky: Some notes about this opening from Markov/Shipkov's "Winning with the Slav"

<4...Nc6> Note that 4...e5!? transposes to the Winawer Gambit having avoided the line 4.dxe5.

<5.Bf4> White tries to remain as flexible as possible by delaying Nf3.

<5...e5!?> A temporary pawn sacrifice to gain the initiative.

<6.Bxe5> The alternative 6.dxe5 d4 7.Ne4 is yet to be tried.

<8.Ne4> One of the tactical points of Timman's idea is that 8.Qa4+? fails to 8...b5! when either capture is met with 9...Bd7

<8...Qb6> Note that 8...Qa5+? is bad: 9.Nd2 Qe5 10.Ngf3 followed by Qa4 +-
