     Has been played by Carlsen, Kasparov, Kramnik, Aronian and many others. If you have run into a road block in that line, you may want to work your way through it. The pedigree of the line is as good as you can hope for. There are plenty of great ideas in that line!

    Yeah, that line is absolutely fascinating from a strategic perspective. My favorite continuation is then 5...Bd7 6.Qh4? Nxc3 Qd4!, and black is doing something ugly to stay alive.

    I have actually played that line when I used 1.c4. I have not really studied that line yet for this repertoire but I am sure you are right about that ideas.Smile

    i ran into a transpositional problem yesterday, was wondering if you could help me with it pellik? i had a game which started 1. Nf3 .. Nf6 2. c4 .. e6 and here i played g3 just lazily assuming he would play a QGD type set up. i know that i could / should have played 3. Nc3 as per anti-nizmo type stuff, but i don't think it would have made a difference if my opponent continued his development in the same way he did in the game. he surprised me with 3 ... Be7, which i more or less ignored as a nothing move and continued my normal development Bg2 and O-O. my opponent then played O-O, c6 and d5 and we ended up in a type of delayed slav. and this is my problem. i don't usually fiancetto my king side bishop against the slav, i play something like delchevs anti slav lines, and so i found myself in a position which is not exactly bad for white but in unfamiliar to me.

     

     
     
    is there anyway to avoid this? or do i just need to look for a reasonable way to play against the slav with a fiancetto of my LSB??
