  tpstar: How did we live without the OE!! I am truly astounded to discover that given Black's candidates at Move 6 in this straightforward dry GP, the best choice based on percentage = 6 ... a6. Presumably if White builds the classic Pawn center at e4 & d4, Black can pressure it from the sides with the Knights along with ... Ba7 & ... Bg4. Instead of 11. e5?! losing a Pawn, perhaps 11. Be2 d5 12. e5 Ne4, or 11. d5 Ne5 12. Bxa7 Rxa7 13. Be2.
