  An Englishman: Good Evening: Nice innovation from Bruno. 8...Nbd7 had never been played before because it looked suicidal for Black. Of course, after looking at this game, I get the feeling the variation is a loss for *both* players.

Incidentally, what happens after 18.Be3?

  TheAlchemist: Actually, 8...Nbd7 was tried first by Mikhail Tal, against Reshevsky no less: Reshevsky vs Tal, 1970, but there the less ambitious 9.Nf3 was played.
Oct-26-12  Abdel Irada: <An Englishman>: One possibility is 18. ...Bh6.

I like your description of the variation as "a loss for both players." This also applies to the rather positionally similar variation of the Alekhine Four Pawns' Attack with ...c5 in lieu of ...Nc6.
