Mar-05-09  Ulhumbrus: White has two assets: Black's doubled pawns and White's advantage in development. If White is unable to make use of his King side pawm majority and Black can undouble his pawns, White may be advised to try to make use of his other asset, his lead in development, and in order to profit from that, to play to open lines as in the game Kasparov vs Kramnik, 2001
