Mar-03-05  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Looks like competition "Who cares less about his own pieces" ...

  SteinitzLives: 11. Bb5 is too ambitious and leads to the exchanges that favor black. It's simple: Both have pieces deep in the others territory but blacks' king is castled and whites' is not. 11. Bd3 keeps it at least equal for white because if black tries any tricks like 11. . . . . Nxc3, 12. Ne5 and black is in trouble since white can castle and keep his lead in space and development.

Many lines of the Falkbeer are actually quite tame as long as white does not play too aggressively and just tries to hang on to the pawn. Of course white must be a Kings Gambit player to get to this, so treating the Falkbeer with the needed prudence may be stylistically very challenging for white, which is of course a great reason to play it for black!
