Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-19-03  ksadler: I played a game last night that went 8. Re1 exd4...what is wrong with this move for Black?
Feb-19-03  Spitecheck: Keene in his book written in the late 70s says the move PxP (LOL Descriptive) is premature, and gives White far too much freedom. In my eyes, a devotee of the Nbd7 KIDs, the move goes against the general principles of the King's Indian, Black lets White set up a centre so he can slash and burn it later with his well positioned pieces. But in this case he frees the position for the white pieces without fixing any White weakness. True Black has few weaknesses, but White will throw all the punches from now on. Having said that it's not so bad to be classified as a blunder, and Black effectively brings his devil on g7 into the game, atleast in the drier positional sense rather than the tactical one all Black players crave.
Feb-20-03  ksadler: Thanks SpiteCheck, I suppose that was the reason for it, to free the diagonal for the Bishop. I understand that it's not a blunder, but you correctly interpreted my question as "why do no 2400+ players play this" :)
