Kibitzer's Corner
May-26-03  ksadler: Can someone please tell me why White would open the center with 14. exd5 (it's probably still theory) Perhaps the idea is to continue the play on the queenside with strong b and c pawns, but I think that Black gets more play in return.
May-27-03  Cyphelium: I think you've already answered the question yourself. =) c4-c5 is of course white's thematical break in the KID. 14. cxd5 would deprive white of this opportunity of playing in the centre, whereas black still would have his kingside play.
