#834 CZE-USA Update

The Czechs now lead 3-2, which isn't so bad compared to the 4-0 whitewash they gave us in hockey on May 11.

E13 Queen's Indian Defense
Nimzo-Hybrid Variation

1.d4 e6 2.c4 Nf6 3.Nf3 b6 4.Bg5 h6 5.Bxf6 Qxf6 6.e3 Bb4+ 7.Nc3 Bxc3+ 8.bxc3 0-0 9.Bd3 Bb7 10.0-0 d6 11.Nd2 Qe7

The most flexible move. The Q didn't have a future at f6.

D38 Queen's Gambit
Ragozin Defense

1.Nf3 d5 2.d4 Nf6 3.c4 e6 4.cxd5 exd5 5.Nc3 Bb4 6.Bg5 0-0 7.Qb3 Bxc3+ 8.bxc3 c6 9.e3 b6 (a novelty) 10.Bd3 +=
