Kibitzer's Corner
May-02-16  suenteus po 147: I suppose the choice of responses to 2.Qe2 has to be either motivated aggression (he thinks he can play around, eh? I'll show him!) or disheartened dejection (whelp, I'm in for a long grind I'm going to lose). I guess I'd fall in the latter category, especially since I don't understand the final position at all.
May-02-16  Howard: Hmmm....Sevian's played the KIA before, but probably not with 2.Qe2.

The late Larry Evans wrote a book about 40 years ago called The Chess Opening For You, in which he strongly advocated the KIA if you were playing White. But, he sure as hell didn't mention 2.Qe2 in his detailed analysis !

May-03-16  zoren: Morozevich was one of the first top players to essay 2.Qe2 with some frequency against the French as to get something original since there is the potential to get a different pawn structure after ed instead of a long theoretical duel around the central dark squares (c5 / d4). It also has the aim of entering a better version of KIA where in some lines where dxe4 is not ideal for Black since there is no more queen swap on d1 enabling White to maybe wait on Nbd2 and try some independent lines.

Here's an interesting encounter where Moro is on the black side, where he opts for 2...e5!

V Zvjaginsev vs Morozevich, 2005

Objectively it probably isn't the most testing since there's a lot more options for Black before entering a KIA proper which is known to be fairly annoying for Black to deal with.

Sep-01-17  Howard: Regarding suenteus' comment, what's so hard to understand about the final position? As I see it, White's position (a la Petrosian) is completely won.
