  Sneaky: 5. ...Qb6 looks suspect to me, as White gets to trade off his "bad" bishop and double Black's pawns in the process. At that point you have to wonder where Black intends on castling!

Maybe simply ...cxd5 and ...Be7 was in order.

Feb-07-02  knight: Black's bishop in no way can be categatarized as bad,but to trade a "normal" bishop for the sake of doubling the opponents pawns is sometimes good strategy.
Feb-06-07  tracker: This is the pawn poisoned variation,Whites exchange in order to avoid Ne4. Giving up the bishop pair is a long term disavantage for white if he is no able to get an edge out of the opening.

Black has 2 plans.First try to cloth white development or retreat and consolidate.
