  Marmot PFL: Black seems to forget that he has a king rook and king bishop to develop.

  An Englishman: Good Afternoon: 11.Bd3 seems to be the new move, if the database is correct. Versus 11.Be2, black has played 11...g6 (L Ootes vs H Tikkanen, 2012) and 11...cxd4 (N Muminova vs M Suede, 2010), and perhaps the investigation into improvements could begin with those moves.
Jul-27-17  CountryGirl: I see what you mean, Marmot. Looking at the position after 22 moves, one has rarely seen such a total failure of an opening on Black's part...

  perfidious: Black's idea of ridding himself of that eternal French bugbear, the bad light-squared bishop, is positionally well motivated, but the tactical execution is a trifle suspect. Too much queenside play and no development on the other wing is a recipe for disaster.
