  Richard Taylor: Interesting N manoeuvre against the Q d6 move in the opening.
May-12-17  protonchess: @ RichardTaylor : indeed, and this is quite typical in a way. To put an odd plan into question one must find concrete moves, often odd looking ones :-)

I like the Knight on c4 so much that don't want to move it on to e5. I'd like to follow up with a setup like g3 and Bf4. Unfortunately Black always has the annoying Nd5, and that's probably why White decided for Nc4-e5.

  Richard Taylor: I see this is a kind of "main subline" and has been played.

Yes g3 is tempting with the N on c4 guarding a5, b6 and d6 etc

Here's another game with this line. I think the line with Qd6 is o.k. for Black but here probably White (in both games) was (or were) the better player(s). But not by a huge amount.

It might be easier to play an early a6 to stop the dance of the N on c3....
