White wins by capitalizing on the immobility of Black\'s Queen.

Instead of 5...Be7, the safe course is 5...d6.

6...d6 was still available.

8...f6? Black\'s best chance is 8...d5.

9...dxc6 10.Rxd4 Bd7 11.e6, winning a piece.

10.Nxd4, threatening to win the Queen by 11.Nxc6 or 11.Ne6

If 10...d5, 11.Nxc6 Qd7 12.Nxe7+ Qxe7 13. Rxd5 with two Pawns to the good.

12...Kh8 loses in the same way.

After 16.Nxe7+, White has gained a piece.

So, 3...NF6 is Berlin Defence; 4 d4 exd4 5 0-0 is the Nyholm Attack. Lots of ideas for both sides, but, yes, 6...d6 looks obvious: 6 e2 supports the freed e-pawn\'s advance.

The white queen also makes room for 8 R1. Similar to the Worrall Attack? >

Surely you would have to be Lasker or Fischer to try that?-
