  KingG: Wow! This actually looks quite modern. The Nf3, Be2, O-O, d5, Ne1, Be3, f3 setup is very similar to the Aronin-Taimanov variation of the KID. Although in that variation, Black plays ...Nc6 instead of ...Nd7.

  hudapri: Interesting comments by Alekhine "Why not make the necessary move at once" And he thinks the Saemisch is best.

15... f4 seems to be wrong because White will strike back with b4 and Black does not have his knights in place for the traditional KID plan.
