8...b6 looks like it would avoid a lot of potential problems?

  beatgiant: <wwall: Better for Black would have been 11...Qc5 instead of 11...Qb4??) 12.Qa8+ Kd7 13.Qxb7 Bd6> But White still looks winning by direct attack after 14. b4! so that 14...Qxb4? 15. Ne5+ Ke8 16. Qxb4 Bxb4 17. Nxc6 forking b4 and d8, or 14...Qxc2 15. Bxd6 Kxd6 16. Na3 Qc3 17. Nc4+ and Black's king looks too exposed to survive.

Jul-19-14  bystander: Next time somebody tells me the Berlin Defense is boring, I refer the person to this game!
Jul-19-14  bystander: <Jun-23-05 MichaelJHuman 10...OOO seems to to be the biggest problem? 8...b6 looks like it would avoid a lot of potential problems?> After 8)..b6, 9)Qa6 looks good to me. Black cannot castle anymore and blakc must prepare himself for Qb7. Maybe 8)..Rc8 because after 9) Qa7x Qb4 and black will win the pawn back on b2.
Jul-19-14  bystander: I do not like 9)..N5 but could not find anyting better myself. My computer recommands 9).. Qd7 instead (if Ne5 then Qd8). Probably to preplare for Be7 and 0-0 and to avoid a pin on the e-file (after Re1) so that f6 still is possible.
