Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-03-05  Kingsandsquares: Vienna...
Jun-18-05  trumbull0042: "1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Nf6 4. Nc3 Bb4 5. d3 d5 6. exd5 Nxd5 7. O-O Bxc3 8. bxc3" Why not 8...Nxc3? That is not one of the two options for black's 8th move in the opening explorer.
Jul-31-05  cuendillar: Probably because of 9.Qe1 gaining a centre pawn for the doubled c-pawn.
Jan-14-10  pablo333: I could well be missing something here, but after the sequence 1 e4 e5 2 Nc3 Nf6 3 Bc4 Nc6, is 4 Qf3 a feasible option for white? For example: 4... Nd4 might be met by 5 Qd3 (with a view to white developing his King Knight to e2 and a possible fianchetto of his Queen Bishop)?!
