Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-20-09  notyetagm: This is the gambit Kasparov used against the Scandinavian in simuls.
Jan-17-10  RsMLuchia: i feel wierd 'bout this game because of those declined gambit like 8.b4... why not just take it?
Jan-18-10  Antonius Blok: Yeah, same question for me, the black have a tempo lost because of 3.Nc3, maybe it would be too dangerous waste of tempo after 8... Qxb4 (with Bd2 and Rb1 maybe)

And what if 13.exf6, I don't see how black will concretise the danger of Rook on d8 (have a small idea but not really convincent)

Jan-18-10  TheChessGuy: Note that he did not use this this gambit in the Anand match (New York, 14th matchgame, 1995).
Jan-18-10  vileblunder: After 8...Qxb4 9. Bd2, black has to move the queen, and has only 2 reasonable moves, Qb6 or Qd6. After 9...Qb6, white will play 10. Rb1, and the greatest attacking player of all-time has a big lead in development! After 9...Qd6, white can still play 10. Rb1. If 10...b6, 11. Bg2, c6...then black has a very cramped position, with all its pieces blocking each other, and 12. Ne5 is a threat.

If black plays 10...Nbd7, white can regain the pawn, with a big lead in development.

Not sure about 13. exf6, it just looks like a transposition mistake.
