Comment by player 2 : Niklas Hallqvist :
I found the opening intriguing, some kind of Indian game vs. the London system. Only after the fact when looking for commentary on the opening I found this link:
There, Eric says that 3..Nc6 is specifically meant as anti 4.Bf4?!. Unfortunately he does not tell why, but gives a subscribers-only link to a game :-( Still 4 years later he himself played Bf4 in a blitz tournament (found in TWIC), so I guess he has since found something for white in that line, or it's just that blitz is different.
My personal opinion is that black comes out quite well with a bishop pair, and then white goes on to make a few mistakes around the 10th move, allowing black to open the game, and developing the bishops to really cover the board. From there it was mostly a transport.
