  Peligroso Patzer: FWIW, the following game by this player:

[Event "RUS-ch U18"]
[Site "Nojabrsk"]
[Date "2005.04.06"]
[Round "1"]
[White "Kuznetsov, Dmitry"]
[Black "Lovkov, Roman"]
[Result "0-1"]
[ECO "D30"]
[BlackElo "2351"]
[PlyCount "74"]
[EventDate "2005.04.06"]
[EventType "swiss"]
[EventRounds "9"]
[EventCountry "RUS"]
[Source "ChessBase"]
[SourceDate "2005.11.24"]

Kf1 b6 33. Bb7 Bb2 34. Bxa6 Bxa3 35. b5 Bb4 36. Ke2 Kf8 37. Bb7 Ke7 0-1

... was cited in a ChessBase opening report I got when I entered the moves through <7. O-O>. This is what was given for the option chosen by Kuznetsov:

"g) 7...cxd4

"Black scores badly (26%).

"played by: Rozentalis, 2588, 1/1; Gallagher, 2525, 0/1; Manor, 2502, 1/1; Gabrielian, 2495, 0.5/1; Zabotin, 2495, 0.5/1

"You should play: 8.Bg5

"Kuznetsov,D - Lovkov,R 0-1"

I am really at a loss to understand why ChessBase would recommend this move. Not only was the result of this game 0-1, the positions for the next several moves (after <8. Bg5>) do not look good for White, nor are they evaluated as such by Fritz.

  Peligroso Patzer: BTW, the game cited in the previous post is the <only> game in ChessBase's Big Database 2012 in which <8. Bg5> was played, which only increases my perplexity why that is the move the opening report says should be played.
