  KingG: < Nimzowitsch would have approved, in particular, of Petrosian's delayed ...c5, and also of the effect that this move then had on White's position. The reader might also like to compare this more recent case, proving that even world champions are not immune to this strategy.>

I assume this is a reference to Kasparov vs Ivanchuk, 1995.

Jul-11-16  garland: What a great positional idea with Qd7. It really reveals a lot of thinking. The lsb is never coming out this way, so might as well mobilize for quick O-O-O. Reminds of course of the ivanchuk game. Petrosian against Campos-Lopez is also relevant.
