  SteinitzLives: 8. Bb3, though played 17 times before in this db leads to nothing but equality for white. Playing Bb3 on move 6 is better.

In the 2 knights white really should play for more: 8. Re1 is so much more in keeping with the spirit of the opening.

One could also argue that the lines resulting from Nbd2 are anti-2knights-spirit for both white and black!

  bright1: The move 32. ... Bd4 was a neat tactical trick.

  beenthere240: If white is going to play timidly, an early h3 would have saved his kingside.

  Penguincw: A final fork will leave black up a full rook.
