Up to the statistics at chessgames.com (http://www.chessgames.com/perl/explorer?node=16418&move=11.5&moves=d4.Nf6.c4.c5....), Qc7 gives better results but my own feeling is that Qe7 offers more options to black.
  

Yusupov once said that “The problem with the Dutch Defence is that later in many positions the best move would be ...f5-f7” but he is surely wrong.

I agree strongly with Kapengut.
  

If sometimes we fly too close to the sun, at least this shows we are spreading our wings.

In the position after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.d5 e6 4.Nc3 ed5 5.cd5 d6 6.Nf3 g6 7.g3 Bg7 8.Bg2 0-0 9.0-0 a6 10.a4 Nbd7 11.Bf4, which move is better: 11...Qc7 or 11...Qe7? According to Kapengut, the move 11...Qe7 places the queen on the half-open e-file and also retains the option of ...Ne8-c7 in the future. What is your opinion?
  

Nothing has meaning or value other than the meaning and value that you give it.
