Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-11-11  LIFE Master AJ: I love miniatures in chess ...
Feb-26-13  dunican: 11..Nd5 wasn't a very good choice but it's hard to do something about the position as 11..e6 12.a3 Qe7 13.Nd6+ looks very unpleasant for black, too. I guess 9..Nhf6 was the critical mistake.
Feb-26-13  Abdel Irada: Although White retains a positional edge, it appears Black may be able to survive for a while with 10. ...Nxe5.

After 11. Bxe5, Qd8, White has a pleasant lead in development but I see no immediate way to convert it, although he can maintain a steady initiative.

Alternatively, 11. dxe5, Qxd1 12. Rxd1, Nd7 is cramped but playable.
