  InspiredByMorphy: Thats some pretty impressive play by White! Interesting way to play against the sicilian.
Jan-06-04  actual: It's a Kings's Indian Attack vs. Sicilian
Jan-06-04  Bears092: This same formation often arives via the french also (1. e4 e6 2. d3 d5, etc.)
Jan-07-04  uglybird: When he played 15...Bd7? Gulko did not see that the knight retreat 17.Nd2! would cost him a pawn.

  FSR: Yes - a strange decisive move. It's unusual that a retreating move is so crushing.
