  Knight13: Black's bishop is stucked for the next 2 moves to avoid White playing Bb5+!. This is not a bad opening position at all.
Jun-12-05  bomb the bishop: I have an overall doubt, what is the main difference if black decides to play 3...g6, or 3..e6 after 1.d4 ♘f6, 2. c4 c5, 3. d5 is g6 intended to avoid another system?
