During the 1966 Havanna chess olympiad the reigning WC Petrosian gave a simultan vs members of the Cuban government. He faced 3...Bd6 vs. F. Castro. A few moves later draw was agreed and 'El Commandante' said he never lost a game with this defence. :D

  sea7kenp: I criticize 3 ... Bd6, blocking Black's Queen Pawn. As you can see, this Bishop is still there, leaving Black's Queen Bishop and Queen Rook undeveloped.
