If you trust 1. c4 e5 2. Nc3 Bb4 (which i don't) then it's fine.

     2.g3 c6

           3.Nf3 e4 4.Nd4 d5 5.cxd5 Qxd5
           3.Bg2/Nc3 d5
           
(There is Keres Defence in it.)
  

as
*W 1d4) Torre/Barry/Pirc/Philidor/ early _d5:early c4(QGD/Slav/QGD/etc)

Very much off topic: Although I've seen it several times, I haven't yet managed to figure out the meaning of "OP" - please give a hint!  Smiley

Thanks!

Well, that is true! I meant that after the continuation OP had been struggling with, it does look like a poor Tarrasch. I thought this position had been mentioned by all of you, but maybe I missed something (no board or books checked)?

Edit: Nevermind, I realized White is supposed to play cxd5 earlier, instead of putting the knight on c3.

Indeed! See my game against Gawain in one of the recent Flank updates! Wink

I think I lost a game as Black in this line 20 years ago, but I must have analysed it on the site - isn't there a Keres page somewhere?

poor for white or for black?

According to Watson, the critical test is 4. Nf3. That's why i play the Keres only after 2. g3 and 3. Bg2, that way i can play the safer Qxd5 after 1. c4 e5 2. g3 Nf6 3. Bg2 c6 4. Nf3 e4 5. Nd4 d5 6. exd5 Qxd5 and also the solid 1. c4 e5 2. g3 Nf6 3. Bg2 c6 4. d4 Bb4+, where Marin's suggestion doesn't promise White an advantage imo.

I don't know but it does seem to me like the recommendations for White after this, by our Tony, Marin and Davies, all look like a poor version of the Tarrasch.
