Thank you both.

Enjoyed John's comment. I would be happy not to be a hero if I could play the QID, or any opening, well.

Take care,

Gerry

Not really an opening for heroes, is it?!

But I agree with Inn2, Karpov back in the day, Topalov now.

Karpov! White side or Black he is the ultimate expert on the QID (imho he knows his QID better than he knows his caro-kann)

Much depends on whether you play 4. a3 or 4. g3.

For 4. a3, Dreev, I.Sokolov and Kozul are specialists nowadays, among younger players, look for Vitiugov and Riazantsev.

For 4. g3, Topalov is your man of course. But Ivanchuk plays the White side of the QID very well too, while Beliavsky's and Van Wely's choices are always interesting. 4. g3 positions are currently hotly contested so  many grandmasters play both sides: Gelfand, Aronian, Mamedyarov etc.

QID heros from White side?

Hello All:

Got this idea from the French thread. But I would seriously like to know whose games to study when playing the White side of the QID (current/retired does not matter).

Thanks very much,

Gerry
