  rilkefan: The opening explorer seems to suggest 4.Qa4+ is better.

  FSR: Yes, 4.Qa4+! c6 followed by either 5.dxc6 e5!? 6.Bd2! or 5.Rxb1 Qxd5 6.e3 is one of White's best lines. Opening Explorer 4.Rxb1?! is playable, but lets Black develop quickly and sets White up to lose a miniature if he plays another inaccuracy or two. See also M Hancas vs E Reicher, 1987 (0-1, 8); K Laciner vs I Miladinovic, 2001 (0-1, 10). But then again there's A Aleksandrov vs Svidler, 1991 (1-0, 18). A sharp line.
