Wow, Black (Grachev) got in both ... c6-c5 -and- ... e6-e5. That just cannot be good to allow if you are White.

Apr-04-08  mistreaver: Isn't 11 Pa3 better instead of 11 Rd1 as it stops black queenside pawns from rolling?

  Karpova: <mistreaver>
Wang Yue tried 11.a3 in this game: Wang Yue vs Z Pengxiang, 2006
Apr-04-08  mistreaver: <Karpova> Yes but he lost on kingside. So 11 a3 stopped queenside pawns from rolling :D
