Sveshnikov 101: Four Knights

The Four Knights more often than not is nothing more than the long route to the Sveshnikov.  Earlier games under the label of "Sveshnikov" below explain some of the reasons Black may choose this route.  White, however, isn't obligated to enter a Svesh and one way to avoid it is to play 6.Nxc6.  The Knight exchange isn't particularly ambitious, but it allows White to steer the game into positions he may know better.
