BCF - Donchenko correspondence game

Oleg Donchenko is a BCF member who doesn't play in any of our tournaments. That's because the Russian chess expert, formerly from Odessa, currently lives in Oregon. However, he hasn't let geography get in the way of playing other members. In fact, he is currently engaged in a correspondence game against the entire BCF membership. Each week members vote on White's next move and the most popular choice is sent to Oleg. Here is the game so far and the current position:

White: BCF
Black: Donchenko

1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 dxe4 4. Nxe4 Nc6 5. Nf3 a6 6. Bf4 f5 7. Ng3 Nf6 *

BCF-Donchenko after move 7

Perhaps you'll want to play along as well ... what's your vote for White's 8th move? I can't guarantee that votes from the blog will count, but if there is a lot activity here I'll ask Paul about it.
