Apr-20-13  optimal play: <<...Aron Nimzovich's 4 . . . Ba6, instead of the standard fianchetto with 4 . . . Bb7, make[s] White decide how to defend the c4 pawn. Thus, 5 Qa4 may leave the queen misplaced later; 5 Qc2 invites 5 . . . c5, when 6 d5?! leads to a dubious gambit after 6 . . . ed 7 cd Bb7 8 e4 Qe7 9 Nc3 Nd5, and 5 Nd2 diverts the queen knight from its most effective post, c3.> - Robert Byrne>

Apr-20-13  JimNorCal: Gruenfeld was perhaps not very ambitious this day. I would want to defend this as black.
Apr-20-13  JimNorCal: Uck. Should be "would NOT want to defend as black".

I blame my spell checker :)
