QID: Petrosian System
I'm thinking of giving the Petrosian System a punt!
I have the new Chess Stars book but the coverage of 4..Ba6 seems a bit sparse in comparison to 4..Bb7.

What are the reasons that make people choose the QID over the QGD? Is it down to whether you prefer hanging pawns or the IQP?

Queen's Indian Hedgehog
It looks like the QID hedgehog isn't very common but surely there are some theoretically sound lines which lead there. How to get the Hedgehog when playing the QID?
