Later on, White could transfer his b1-knight to the weakened c4-square. According to my analysis, White gets an advantage in all the lines. My examination confirms this evaluation. At this point, I provide the reader with a choice.
Bxc4 exd5 7. I am convinced that with a precise play, White maintains a slight edge. Despite the fact that the arising positions are extremely complicated, Black's play is much more difficult.
