I've been looking at theory behind this variation and seen that after reaching the position and main line 4(...,h6) 5(Bh4), 5(...,c5) is taken as a given with the response 6(d6). Yet it is not inherently aparent to me that 6(dxc5) fails as recapturing with the bishop on b4 releases the knight pin and blacks development looks cramped with 6(...,Nf6) the best available option.
So I wondered if anyone had seen a critical move/line which may explain why this move isn't considered as an option even as a gambit along Alekhine lines.
