  tpstar: Caro-Kann PBA with 6 ... Bb4 7. cd Nxd5 where 8. Bd2 is slightly more common than 8. Qc2 Opening Explorer The next branch point is Move 11 with 11. Rd1 over 11. a3 Opening Explorer but surely there is much transposition. This is the first db game (here) with 12 ... Nxc3; two games went 12 ... Nce7 Opening Explorer with Black trying to maintain the Nd5 blockade, and one with 12 ... Bd7 I Gaponenko vs V Johansson, 2001 where White traded 13. Nxd5 exd5 so both sides had the IQP. For this game, see how the continued piece trading reduced any attacking chances, then Black enjoyed the superior endgame as White's d Pawn required constant defense. Maybe 18. Be4 would give White more play, followed by 19. Rd2 & 20. Rad1, holding off on the d4-d5 advance. Meanwhile, Black's King and Queen held the Kingside dark squares very well.
Aug-22-06  positionalgenius: ALL Hail Karpov!
Dec-16-07  Freidenker: Why is the game considered a "Nimzo-Indian Defense" ? It's a Caro-Kann Panov !
Dec-17-07  solarsystem: The position after 7...Nxd5 can arrive from the Nimzo-Indian Defense.
