Sep-10-04  Knight13: 4...Bxc6 would win a pawn. Why provisionals don't do that?
Sep-10-04  iron maiden: <Knight13> 4. Bxc6 doesn't win a pawn, because after 4...dxc6 5. Nxe5, Black gains it back with 5...Qd4.
Sep-11-04  Knight13: <iron maiden> Or 5...Qe7 because bringing out queen out too early is dangerous.
Sep-11-04  Giancarlo: <Or 5...Qe7 because bringing out queen out too early is dangerous. >

Bringing out the queen to early usually means a certain thing. For example:

1.e4 e5 2.bc4 d6 3.Qf3

Is bringing out the queen to early. I don't neccessairly think that in this opening it is such a bad idea. In the line above, 3.nf3 is more beneficial to white.

Where as in this opening, Black equalizes by bringing the queen out with out obsructing the path of other minor pieces that are really meant for the opening.
