Mar-13-07  nescio: <candide1500: hmmm my question is why is 5. bxc4 stronger than Bxc4...> I would also have played 5.bxc4 for a stronger grip on the centre and the possibility to create a powerful pair of hanging pawns later, but I suppose it is largely a matter of taste. Smyslov for example seems to disagree: Smyslov vs B Huguet, 1972

  ray keene: if you look at my notes given to this game you will see that i was following a game by tal who also preferred bxc4! probably a matter of taste tho i nearly always like to capture towards the centre with pawns.
Aug-23-11  candide1500: I also really like the suggested move 23.d5! in the notes (avoiding c5 and weakening the d5 square) in the line responding to 21...cxd4. Black is hit with two isolated pawns and white gains open lines...however, after 25. Nf5 my computer still gives black a hefty edge after b4!?.
