GW-KW, Point Count Chess Raw Discussion, File #8:
Part of the Advanced Beginner's Chess Guide (Section 2)
RECENT MOVES: 6. b3 Nc6
(GW, June 9th) PROPOSED MOVE: 7. Bb2
Reasoning: Black's Queen Knight doubles the pressure on White's d4-pawn.
We (White) played 6. b3 with the intention of fianchettoing the Queen Bishop to b2, which would see White's d4-pawn protected by 3 units (Nf3,Qd1,Bb2), against the 2 Black units (c5,Nc6). We'll also be developing a piece in that move, maintaining an efficient rate of development, right?
I can't see any other move, for White, that'd be better, based on what I've just described, in addition to KW's comments, leading up to us playing 6. b3.
SELECTED MOVE: 7. Bb2
