    This is the continuation to Thread 101870

    After 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4, we reach this position.



    Here we are again in a similar position as the last move.

    4. ... Nf6 is played a large percentage of the time.

    I say we skip the voting and go straight into that.

    All those for that, type Agreed.
    All those that want to vote type Vote.

    The first one to 15 wins.
    I'll stay out of it.

    I'm surprised at that. 4. ... Nf6 5. Nc3 e6 is your beloved Scheveningen.

    Let's avoid the Keres;

    ...and anyway the next move will get the Horsey to f6, so what 's the diff?!

    g6, though even if Nf6 is decided upon, please stop this "voting for a voting" business. I don't like it very much.

    I agree.

    If we are supposed to vote for moves, then we vote. The person counting the votes should not be making comments on moves before the voting begins.

    I think this all started with the multiple choice. It is a form of suggesting the acceptable moves, which leads to this kind of thing.
