  tpstar: <azaris> Nice game. After 7. g3 I prefer 7 ... g4 8. Nh4 f3 which really blocks off the Kingside A Kujawski vs A Czerwonski, 1989 or else 8. gf!? gxf3 and the f file is closed by White's Pf4 while Black enjoys the piece.

I agree with ... Bh3 if White hasn't castled yet Milner-Barry vs C H Alexander, 1973

Jun-12-05  aw1988: It has been years since I've played that variation, and admittedly totally trounced in it against azaris. I had this "master plan" of invading on e6 with my knight, but I realized the position was hopeless.

By the way, Bb5+ does lose a piece, but it's actually theory, believe it or not.
