  Joshka: Is anyone familiar with this line? 1.d4 d5 2.c4 dc4 3.Nf3 a6 4.e3 b5 5.a4 c6??? No games in our database with this accept for 5.Bb7. Is 5...c6 transposing into another known opening that our database cannot handle? thanks in advance
Dec-13-06  Eyal: <Joshka> You can find 32 games arriving at this position in ( database).

  Joshka: <eyal> All right thanks but I can't get that database on my Macintosh computer, the screen is just blank......what's the name of the opening with 5...c6?..thanks for the help!
Dec-13-06  Eyal: <Joshka> I believe 1.d4 d5 2.c4 dxc4 3.Nf3 a6 is called "Alekhine defence" (of the QGA), and 4.e3 b5 is the "Haberditz variation", but 5...c6 doesn't have a special name.
Dec-13-06  Eyal: And having gone over some of those games, I'm not surprised 5...c6 is rare - after 6.axb5 cxb5 7.b3 black's position looks pretty lousy.
