In our last post we have studied Black's 2nd reply as a 5th move alternative, Variation B: 5...Bc5 including the sub-variations, Variation B1: 7...d5!? and Variation B2: 7...d6 in the Moller and Arkhangelsk Variations.
Today we will go for Black's 3rd reply as 5th move alternative, Variation C: 5...b5 which will include two sub-variation i.e Variation C1: 6...Bc5 and Variation C2: 6...Bb7. We will study only Variation C1 today which will again include two sub-variation as Black's 8th move alternatives, namely Variation C11: 8...Bb7, Variation C12: 8...Rb8 and Variation C13: 8...Bg4.
So, let's start with Variation C11: 8...Bb7
Let's move on to Variation C12: 8...Rb8
And now, Variation C13: 8...Bg4
Well, it has been a lengthy discussion today. The point was to finish the study of Variation C1: 6...Bc5 in one go to avoid future inconvenience for you as well as for me.
Hope it was not too much to you. In fact, it should not be too much. There is nothing called "too much" in chess.
In the next post we will study Variation C2: 6...Bb7.
Keep visiting and keep reading. There is lot more to come.
Thanks a lot. Enjoy!!
