Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-23-11  dumbgai: 5. Qb3 looks like an awkward move to me. 5. Qc2 is the main move. White ends up moving the queen back to c2 anyways, losing a tempo.
Dec-23-11  haydn20: A remarkably sloppy game on both sides. 5. Qb3 seems dubious, but White keeps a slight edge since Black doesn't play Nc6. 8. Bg5 is more consistent and 13. e3 just wins a pawn. It doesn't make sense to play 14. e4? giving Black a passer, and moves 18-21 just look weak for White. White might still hold after 21...Red8 (21...Nxa3 seems to win outright), but continues to make poor moves.
