Stevens why, tactically, Black could nol afford to play C , . . B-N5ch. This m o v e i s also poor strategically: strategically: i"he plan is lo put pressure on White's QP, which, if coaxed (or coerced) into into advancing to Q5, b e c o m e s hopelessly slat- ic. On his scvcnlh move Wlulc has a choice between 7 0-0 and 7 N-H3. The play \vilh minor pieces is important. Preferable Preferable is 7 N-B3 because later, in one variation While will prefer to delay castling for several moves, cone en I rat ing on hi's center instead, instead, a t t e m p t i n g to retain ils fluidity.
