Cambridge Springs - Panczyk and Ilczuk
In their book, Panczyk and Ilczuk favour the line 7.Nd2 bxc4 because they consider 7...Bb4 8.Qc2 O-O 9.Be2 e5 10.dxe5 Ne4 11.Ncxe4 good for White (p.161).
However, in the ChessPub ebook on the QG...

QGD: 3...Nf6 vs 3...Be7
I heard from many sources, like Seirawan commenting in Sinquefield Cup and NM Dereque Kelley in one of his youtube videos, suggesting that after 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3, 3...Be7 is more accurate than [b]3...Nf

Andreikin-Kramnik, World Cup R3
Anyone else check out this game?

[Site "chess24.com"]
[Date "2015.09.17"]
[Round "19"]
[White "Andreikin, Dmitry"]
[Black "Kramnik...|/pgn]
I am not an expert in the QGD by any means, but 9...c5!? seems kind of unusual, but interesting. At the very least I thought Kramnik's position was quite appealing after 16...Qc6.
According to my understanding from the White side, 10.dxc5 should be tried. I wonder what Kramnik's idea was here? I analyzed quite a few ...d4 ideas after 10...Nc6, but nothing seemed to totally work. Black does have a lot of ways to head into 2B vs. 2N positions down a pawn, but I'm not sure about any of them.
Will post more when I get home from work and have access to a database and computer.  Grin
