Jun-03-19  Roark: 8...0-0 has a bad reputation for Black. Leads to worse positions for Black. 8..Bd7 is the 'mainline' according to established theory int his line.
Jun-03-19  Roark: 9. Nxc6 leads to better positions for White
Jun-03-19  Roark: Good perpetual decision. Despite the look of the White king, Stockfish assesses position as a minuscule better for White.

In case anyone besides me is wondering what's going on at the beginning of that line: 26....Qg5+ 27.Kf2 d3 28.cxd3 Qh4+ 29.Kg1 Qd4+ 30.Kh1 Qf2! 31.Rg1 Re1 32.Qb8+ Be8. Nice, huh?
