Jan-20-11  bronkenstein: Ty for excellent read !

They mentioned this game in Chess.ok computer comments on one of Carlsen`s games , and I repeatedly failed to understand what could be the white`s strategy , plan , or simply logics to enter and play such position , since it looked so pasive and pointless , giving black freedom to do whatever he wants in center or on any flank he wants...

Me being mostly tactician, and seeking forced continuations or some standard plan (seek initiative , fight for space , especially in center , develop fast , dont let black advance too much and other things i understand intuitively )failed to grasp the long term strategy of white`s ˝passive˝ and even provocative , to some extent , playing in this one :)
