  IMlday: An amusing postscript: When Shaun Press was later 'randomly' chosen for urinalysis drug testing and just said no, Dr. Gajadin cast the deciding vote to cancel all Shaun's games from the Olympiad.

Evidently the concept of "conflict of interest" is unknown to Dr. Gajadin.

After 5.d4, d5! is correct, when White's best is to bail out with 6.dxc5! dxc4 7.Qxd8+ leading to an equal ending. (Other sixth moves score very badly for White.) Since 5.b4 helps White's development less than 5.d4, d5! ought to be a strong response to it, too, as Honza Cervenka said.
