Aug-27-07  wolfmaster: Kolty was famous for his sacrificial miniatures.
Aug-27-07  Shams: I wouldn't give my real name either if I played black here.
Aug-27-07  MaxxLange: 5...e5! is supposed to be the only move to cause White problems in this line. So, 4. Nf3 is the theoretical move. I guess you don't need to worry about that if you are Koltanowski, though.
Aug-27-07  Shams: the theoretical move is to allow 4...Nxe4 eh? hmm.

I have a bit of experience with a similar line (after 5...e5!) in the QGA. The difference is there is still a black pawn on c4. White often plays d4-d5 and then you can hit with ...b5!? and a fun game.

Aug-27-07  MaxxLange: <shams: the theoretical move is to allow 4...Nxe4 eh? hmm.>

There is nothing to take on e4 in the line I gave. On move 4, White plays 4. Nf3, not 4. e4:

1. d4 d5 2. c4 Nf6 3. cxd5 Nxd5 4. Nf3

All of this is in any decent opening book.

Aug-27-07  Shams: ahh, brain lapse. for which, thanks for the snark.
Aug-27-07  MaxxLange: no problem, I should have given the whole line in the first place
