John Watson and I are finishing our new book Taming Wild Chess Openings, and 
I will be posting some of our analysis, starting with this offbeat way of handling the Russian Game with 4.Nd3!? This is not a scary line but it can catch Black by surprise. It was developed by  Midwest Master Andrew Karklins.

    I feel like there's nothing good for white there. Do you see that position as a game is worth to play as white? Or are we just trying to justify a novelty?

    Cool opening, immeadiately after I read this article yesterday, I played somebody and we happened to go right into this. Always useful to study!

    cxd3 is more accurate; then Black is well developed and White's extra pawn is isolated and doubled

    why not 14. cxd3? Undoublesw the pawns

    seriously? after 9...d5 surely black is better. Black's pieces are simply more active, and white has a hard time developing his pieces.
