Andreikin-Kramnik, World Cup R3
Anyone else check out this game?
[Event "FIDE World Chess Cup"]
[White "Andreikin, Dmitry"]
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.

Anyway to get White advantage in this line?
7.Nc3 dxc4(?! I always thought that it is bad to allow White to develop his bishop in 1 move)

Cambridge Spring still sound?
Hi chess friends. I am playing the semislav but I fear the Botvinnik and the antimoscow variations, so I am planning to face Bg5 with the Cambridge Spring. But I am concerned because very few people p...

My next opponent plays cambridge springs; nowadays it´s played quite seldom, so I´m not familiar with the current theory, for example NCO evaluates this line between "=" and unclear.

I have a reasonable book by Gambit on the Cambridge-Springs. This defence looks like an alternative to the very complex and theoretical Bg5 semi-slav.
However, if after Nbd7 by black, white plays...

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...

Cambridge Springs style trap
I'm sure most of us are aware of the dangers of the normal placing of a Bishop on d3 in the Cambridge Springs and some of us have even set the trap with the Black pieces.
In the 2014 World Junior...

Cambridge springs/ QGD / Semi-Slav sideline
I´m preparing to play the 5.Bg5 Semi-Slav and here Black can play
1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Nf3 e6 5.Bg5 Nbd7 which converts into the QGD-Cambridge-Springs system. Amateur players (let´s say b...

Can we have some coverage of this variation
1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Bg5 Bb4+ 5.Nbd2 dxc4.
It's not covered in any of the updates or the pdf ebooks.

After several years of trying offbeat lines, I am planning to pick up a standard line which doesn't require regular "theory study" to stay alive in open tournaments. I am an IT professional with aroun...

What do you think of this book ?
Does it deal adequately with Ragozin and Vienna variation ?
Would you recommend it on these lines ?

Coverage of Ragozin variation ?
I couldn't find any coverage of the Ragozin variation (1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 d5 4.Nc3 Bb4) in the d4 d5 section, nor in the Nimzo section.
What is the current assessment of the varia...

Does 7...Nbd7 in the QGD have a name?
I mean in the position where Black normally chooses between 7...Ne4 (Lasker) or 7...b6 (Tartakower/TMB system).
The closest I have come to finding a name is in Matthew Sadler's QGD book where he...

Early c5 in Tartakower
The opening of today's game in Qatar by Kramnik caught my eye. Actually he played it last year in Qatar as well and a handful of his elite colleagues have been giving it a try.
