White's 9.Bd2 in this position was miserable. (Tell him I said so).
White has just defended a pawn the lads were soundly saccing 400 ago!!
What we have here is a Giuoco Piano Moller Attack except Black has no d-pawn.
So the c4 Bishop is not going to get bugged with d5.
And with the Knight on d5 instead off e4 the e-file is open for business.
Black cannot take twice on c3 to win the pawn as either way he gets hammered.
Don't believe me, believe Greco who knew this in 1620!
(look st his Giuoco Piano's).
Pity the White player did not know this in 2010
You must know the classics. They give you ideas.
So after 9.00! White has King safety plus a tempo as Black has a piece hanging.
In 1.e4 e5 openings that have opened right up this tempo is critcal.
White is ahead and Black needs to find some only moves to stay on the board.
Indeed against a good player it may already be too late for Black..
9...Bxc3 10. bxc3 0-0 White is calling the play.
With a bit of liberty taken but it shows you the potential.
Cannot comment about the rest of the rest game. I did not go past move 9.
