[Apr 24, 2016] Updated Opening Line by GM Bojan Vučković:
Four Knights Game, Spanish Variation without 4… Nd4 (incl. Double Ruy Lopez)

[Line 374 : 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 Nf6 4. Nc3 without 4… Nd4]

Just a couple of hours after GM Vučković had published his update of Line 374, Mr. Albert Schenning from Belgium sent us a mail with a promising idea for White, beginning with 12. Qh5!? After a collaborative effort between our dear user and the CO 24/7 Editorial Board, we have finally reached a conclusion that GM Vučković’s initial evaluation that the position is approximately equal still stands, but that after Mr. Schenning’s improvement Black has to tread very carefully, as there is a long and winding road still ahead of him.

[Diagram: Black to Move] Mr. Schenning has just shown his hand, and it’s obviously a very strong one. Can you survive the attack and steer the Black’s ship into a safe haven?
