One can't but have the feeling that maybe, just maybe, White has misplayed the opening.

Dec-08-15  Howard: Did you notice that Black did much, much better in this event than White ? Probably no accident
Oct-06-17  Serpentin: Apres 3..Cf6 je suggere aux blancs 4.c4!? plutot que de se cantonner sur le gain du pion... Par la suite les blancs sont fatalement restreint.

Beau coup que ce 20...Cf3!. il est malaisé ici de donner la qualité (Rh1) Apres la prise en f3, les blancs sont démoli!

Jan-05-19  Nairaboi: White played the opening abysmally and paid for it.3.d×c5 was the beginning of white's woes which relinquished the center to black.
Apr-12-20  jerseybob: <Nairaboi: White played the opening abysmally and paid for it.3.d×c5 was the beginning of white's woes which relinquished the center to black.> 3.dxc5 is playable, as HNP demonstrated in his 1904 game against Marshall(in this data base). The real mistake was white's attempt to keep the pawn. You've got to wonder just whom Von Scheve thought he was playing, but he found out soon enough!
