Jan-18-07  Scarecrow: 72. Kh2 Qg3+ and after 73. Kh1/Kg1 Qgxg2 mates.

<4. Nd2> Only 49 games with this move in the database (see Opening Explorer) and statistically very good for White. Favoured by the Kosintseva sisters and Sergei Rublevsky.

<5...c5> 5...Nd7 is much more popular.

<9...Qc7> appears to be new. For 9...Ne7 see Rublevsky vs M Turov, 2004 or Rublevsky vs Dreev, 2004 or Rublevsky vs S Erenburg, 2005 or V Malakhov vs A Galkin, 2006 or N Kosintseva vs S Erenburg, 2006 or N Kosintseva vs Chiburdanidze, 2006

<14. Bd6> is seemingly strong but I find it a bit 'artificial' and it seems to concede the initiative. Black's next moves are natural and strong and leave white a pawn down eventually. Maybe White should have gone for some exchanges (like 14. Bxc6+ or so, or should have tried 14. h3 before it's too late)

Interesting game in the Knights vs Bishops context as well.
