Apr-02-12  Everett: One never tires of Bronstein's KIDs, an opening he almost never played frivolously (save for his well-known "win" vs Petrosian in '56, where he was consummately outplayed, after a trappy and weak queen sortie)

Here he plays the logical 12..c6 preparing d5. After the dust settles around move 22, Bronstein has a nice central passer and more activity.

Apr-02-12  Shams: 2...e5 scores well for Black. Opening Explorer
Apr-03-12  Everett: <Shams> the old KID pioneers used to play exactly that way, save the inclusion ...Nf6 and Nc3, not fearing the exchange of queens.

Have you seen the new book out on the Old Indian, or, rather, ..d6 in general?

Apr-03-12  Shams: <Everett> No, I'm on my own here. I'm only playing 1.d4 d6 to transpose back into the Modern Defense, which I need tons of help with.
Apr-03-12  Everett: <Shams> why not 1..g6 right away then? Why dabble with ..d6?

Are you familiar with Seirawan's use of ..d6?

Alburt vs Seirawan, 1988

Apr-03-12  Shams: <Everett> Great Seirawan game, thanks.

<Why not 1..g6 right away then? Why dabble with ..d6?>

I don't have a good answer. I guess I felt like 1...d6 was more likely to provoke 2.e4 than 1...g6 might be. Of course, either way I need to be prepared for KID lines. Also, as mentioned I like the 1.d4 d6 2.c4 e5 lines.
