Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-28-12  darshandatta: It seems black's game strategy was based on restraining white's d and f pawn which would keep centre closed so that white can't take advantage of his lead in development. Also f4 pawn not only reduces mobility of white's pieces but also since it is restrained f5 becomes a perfect outpost for black
Jul-18-13  Everett: I believe this game is discussed in Winning Chess Strategies. The book brings up the exact points you mention <darshandatta>.

Seirawan was quite good with basic strategy, with a knack for stodgy pawn structures and knight play. He was able to implement many of his ideas over the board against some of the very best players. Combined with solid endgame play, there is a lot to be learned by going through his games.
