Notes on chess in Chicago.
Nice unstereotypical attack Qb3-h3! The 'pin' on White's e pawn with 4...Bh5 encouraged the strong response Qb3!I wonder if a better case could be made for the retreat 4...Be6!?
Well, 4...Be6 has only been played a couple of times that I can determine, but it's scored a lot better (+1 -1) then the "normal" moves 4...Bf5, 4...Bh5, and 4...Nf6.

And "then" should be "than" - sigh.
