6...a6!?

This is how <Stahlberg> defeated Medina in a tournament game and it is understandable that he was optimistic about entering the same line again. However, the move order can't be good. In order to gain a temporary advantage of the bishop-pair and an illusory improvement in his centre, Black allows himself to get behind in development. White's advantage lies in the fact that he is quicker getting his pieces into play and this will enable him to exchange one of the black bishops and later blockade his opponent's 'strong' centre with pieces. Then Black's centre pawns will actually become immobilized and his whole queenside weak.
