    In game Game 2095223 I appear to have screwed up by playing 5. b3.
    What would have been a better response? If I play 5. Nb3 and he responds 5 ... Bc5 what do I do?

    Nb3 is the correct move here......after Bc5 then just Nxc5 and white has a good game. I tried this Qb6 move for a bit, it doesnt seem to work since win correct play blacks king often ends up in the center and white tends to land pieces on d6.

    Yes, but after 5.Nb3, black is hardly going to play Bc5, is he?

    Do you have trouble following short sentences?

    Apologies - I didn't read the 1st post fully. But Bc5 is a bad idea.
