Jul-07-07  majason: Something can't be right here as 8. b4 drops the bishop for nothing, no? I find it hard to believe the world's #10 would have missed this...

  Knighthawkmiller: If white plays 8.b4, then black has only two pawns for the bishop in exchange. The two knights are able to keep white pinned down. It is hard to find a good continuation for white over the board.
Sep-13-19  MelvinDoucet: @Knighthawkmiller You can't be serious, Stockfish gives white +4.3 after 8. b4. Also, the Nf4 is hanging on move 10. This score sheet is nonsense.
