Jan-29-06  blingice: Anyone on <CG.com> played this opening?
Jul-30-06  Rocafella: Qd2 is a continuation? As the exchange of the pawn is good for white, as is the advance on the e-pawn, closes lines for black.

  ganstaman: So if white decides to play 8. dxe6, recapture with bishop or pawn?
Jan-29-07  KingV93: I like to play the Kings Indian and my regular foil has taken up this as his standard method of assault upon my position, though apparently we do no play the 'main line' as I like to continue to try for the e5 advance instead of c5.
Sep-16-08  Cactus: <ganstaman> Bishop. Basically, in this line black sacs a pawn - and gets almost no compensation, so it's not too popular anymore, I think.

White has a space advantage on the queenside and looking to break through on the queenside. However, black would like to break down white's center and go with an attack on the kingside.
