Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-13-05  InspiredByMorphy: 7.Nc3 was played by Tal 88 years later. Tal vs Lutikov, 1964 I personally think Bird's 7.Ng5 is better. 7. ...Qxd5 is proven no good in this game, and it seems to me black has few options. Although it gives up another pawn, black can achieve some great development and a strong position after 7. ...Bd6 8.Nxe4 O-O
Apr-04-08  Knight13: 7. Nc3 is a safter alternative. 7. Ng5 is a more tactical and sharp move. Both moves work just fine. But for a guy like Tal 7. Ng5 should suit him better, though.

Note 9. Nc3 would be met by 9...Bb4.
