|Oct-17-13|| ||Everett: Well, look at that, my opening ideas played by the GMs. 4.c4 is <my> line, welcoming a trade, transposing to a superior Vitolinsh Bogo.|
The Rosso-Canal lines give Black no rest in the Sicilian.
|Oct-17-13|| ||waustad: Romanishin seems to have scooped you: Romanishin vs Savon, 1975 That is unless you've been playing it for a long time. Looking at this database: http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches... it was mostly played by him until recently when the Bb5 stuff became more popular.|
|Oct-17-13|| ||JCigan: <Everett> The structure is not even close to the same as a Vitolinsh Bogo-Indian, wow. Somebody call all the 2700+s in the world, 3... Bd7 is refuted|
|Oct-17-13|| ||Everett: <waustad> Thanks for that game! Had no idea that Romanishin was playing that so early in the line. And, no, I hadn't played it when I was two years old, so no accolades for me. Yeah, I'm not going to leave any opening marks on chess, but I can try in my amateur chess way.|
<JCigan> Wow, relax. Lots of structures can come from 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 Bb4+ 4.Bd7 c5 lines, including and early ..e5 from Black, which is what you end up with here. Whether there is an exchange on b5 or not here, it is basically a Nimzo-reversed with the king's up two squares, and the opponents queen's pawn one square back. Here is a game when ..e5 shows up. Beliavsky vs Seirawan, 1985
Didn't say anything was refuted. Try reading the post.
I do like the fact that these lines were not considered serious for many, many years, and now they are all the rage, WC material, Carlsen taking down Anand with it, etc. In a way it is vindication for Rublevsky and Adams.
|Oct-18-13|| ||DiscoJew: I'd be inclined to appreciate how Everett appreciates the position,the structures sans the e4-e6 slight mirror inexactitude. Simon Williams' current game vs the world has been transposing arguably perhaps through many different revered openings, and that game is still in the opening phase. As someone who plays 1.c4 just to get into "reversed Sicilian" lines, say after black plays 1...e5, but. I am also keen to transpose to reversed Benoni positions or reversed King's Indian positions- granted always with their own particular relative nuances, but undoubtedly positions that have similar themes- tactical idea's- and strategic plans. Radjabov comes to quick mind as a player who plays many reversed openings, mainly the aforementioned things I play above. Rock on lads!|

|Oct-25-13|| ||DrAttitude: <GM Natalia Pogonina> thanks for the post. Excellent game for 4. c4.|
|Dec-06-13|| ||jphamlore: This game illustrates to me how Garry Kasparov's retirement from active play is depriving us of his insights on opening theory. Isn't this game a standard Maroczy Bind battle? I think Kasparov would always try and arrange the position for Black so that he could play d5 and forcibly smash the Bind such as:|
Karpov vs Kasparov, 1985
Huebner vs Kasparov, 1981

Oh yes, so deprived.
