Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-19-13  superstoned: In this game White's f3 does not deter Black from playing 12...Nxe4!

But what's the advantage to ...Nbd7 before going for a Dragon set-up? I think Black should welcome a knight trade after ...Nb-c6 and I know I would prefer to keep the c8-h3 diagonal open.

Course I got a ways to go yet in terms of chess ability.

The move was a new idea back then, played by Bilek in several games. The attractiveness of fresh ideas and the power of fashion...

Anyway, 5... ♘bd7 retains the option of playing a Scheveninguen/Najdorf structure instead if white chooses 6. ♗e3, thereby avoiding a pure Yugoslav attack - black will go for g6 after less agressive moves like 6. ♗e2 or 6. g3. The DS bishop is also supposed to stand worse at g5 than e3.
