Very useful coverage. I found his comments regarding Kornevs suggestions in the Averbakh a bit strange though. His suggested improvement for black after 6..c5 7.d5 h6 8.Bf4 e6 9.dxe6 Bxe6 10.Qd2 Qb6 11.Nf3 Nc6 12.0-0 Kh7 13.Nd5 Bxd5 14.exd5 - Ne4/Nb4 -. He says these are the engines first suggestions, but then he is using a different engine than I am. The resulting positions are so bad for black that I'm tempted to suspect that he analysed the wrong position.
