Nov-10-04  themindset: yeah, well, this variation is essentially a queen's indian and a nimzo indian (leningrad variation) all rolled into one, with the best aspects of both working for the black side...

4.a3 (some people call it the kasparov variation) is now standard, to avoid such lines where it is very difficult for white to establish any kind of advantage.
