Kibitzer's Corner
May-18-06  ChessDude33: Great way of giving back the pawns to defend vs the Danish. I bet Danish players hate going into an endgame this fast!
May-18-06  radu stancu: <ChessDude33> Actually, it's one of the classic ways of playing the Danish, up to 10.Nxd2. Pretty uneventful if you go into this lines, that's why I only play the Danish against much weaker opposition who doesn't see 4...d5 to equalize.
May-18-06  radu stancu: Just a correction. Black can also play cxb2 first and d5 at move 5 with the same results. In fact that's the most usual way to play this line.
Jun-20-09  birthtimes: It would be interesting to play 24. Bd4 c4 25. h5 and see if White could get it down to a bishop vs. knight endgame where the bishop could stymie the Black queenside pawns by guarding the a5-e1 diagonal while simultaneously mobilizing his kingside pawns and advancing his King up through the center of the board.
Oct-18-13  MarkFinan: In this opening variation blacks queenside pawns are a complete nightmare to deal with. No wander it's mainly played in internet blitz games.

Aug-21-16  Gallant4: After 10. Nxd2 the material is even and the position seems to favor white slightly.
