Originally posted by vuelveWhite is simply much better after 8. Bxd5 Qf6 (say) 9. Bxc6+ Qxc6 10. Qxc6+ bxc6. White is a pawn up and Black has doubled C pawns and an isolated E pawn.
Play usually continues:
7. Qf3+ Ke6
Black will play 8...Nb4 or 8...Ne7 and follow up with ...c6
but whats wrong if he plays 7...Ke8??
Originally posted by Mephisto26.d4 is worth of consideration. Maybe its even better than 6.Nxf7, but in my opinion sacrifice on f7 is worth of it even in CC.
Isn't 6.d4 better than 6.Nxf7? I thought you can defer the sac on f7 until the knight becomes attacked. The more development white gets before that, the easier the win.
