Probably too late now, but 1.d4 d6 2.g3!? is a good move, seems consistent with the rest of the repertoire, and doesn't allow the Wade Defence.

2.g3 is proposed by Burgess in his book A Cunning Chess Opening Repertoire for White, but I don't like 2...e5 3.dxe5 dxe5 4.Qxd8+ Kxd8.

Thanks for this line! After 1.d4 d6 2.g3 e5 3.dxe5 dxe5 4.Qxd8+ Kxd8 5.Nc3, Black can venture 5...Be6 6.f4 e4 with messy positions, e.g. 7.Nh3 h6 8.Nf2 f5 9.Bh3 (or 9.g4 as in Grandelius-Kadric, 2019) 9...Nc6! (intending Nxe4 Nd4), Cf. diagram:

White wins a pawn after 10.Be3 Ke7 11.Nb5 Nf6 (11...Rc8?! 12.Bc5+ Kf7 13.Bxf8) 12.Nxc7 Rc8 13.Bc5+ Rf7 14.Nxe6 Kxe6 15.Bxc8 Rhxc8 16.0-0-0, but the computer claims 0.00 in a slippery position. I was going to play 1.d4 d6 2.g3 but maybe 2.Nf3 Bg4 3.e4 is simpler for White.

That line always puts me in mind of Ivkov-Fischer, Second Piatigorsky Cup 1966, and Ivkov's amusing notes in the tournament book (at least some of which can be seen at the link).


At the risk of sliding a bit off-topic, I think the Fianchetto anti-KID line I like most apart from 6 b3 (and possibly 6 a4) is 6 Re1. Then if ...d5 + c2-c4/...c7-c6 happens, White's QN can develop more actively on c3, impeding ...a5/...a4 which I believe is one way for Black to 'do something' (iso sitting there to be strategically rolled up) if the QN is on d2.

I see that some old theory, including Burgess in NCO, had that as slightly better for White after 5. Nc3 c6 6. f4. (ECO addressed several other fifth moves by Black, with the same evaluation.)

The last chapter, Chapter Nine, deals with the Modern and rare lines. I just started to play a correspondence game that featured the Wade Defence with 1.d4 d6 2.Nf3 Bg4, but unfortunately there is no mention of it. The chapter has 14 games. It features 1.d4 g6 2.g3, 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 c5 3.dxc5!?, 1.d4 d5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.c4 Bg4 4.Nbd2!?, 2...Bf5 3.c4, 1.d4 d6 2.Nf3 g6 3.g3, 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 b6 3.g3 and 1.d4 e6 2.Nf3 c5 3.g3.

Thanks, TD. Going for the slightly less common lines is a good approach. Ta for Catalan info! I've always liked 10 Bd2 personally, but it seems its would-be clamping fangs (if fangs can clamp) have been drawn!

I have to dig deeper into the book, but the newest game is from 2021. I haven't seen any TN's (yet). "I'm recommening 1 d4 followed by variations which feature a kingside fianchetto and in some slightly less common move orders than the main lines, thereby avoiding forcing lines and positions with which our opponemts may be pretty familiar." "An understanding of plans is far more important than memorisation of move orders." I will give away that in the Catalan mainline Pavlovic chooses the positional 10.Bg5 instead of the more complex 10.Bd2.

Thanks v. much for these summaries, TD -- very useful. I'd be interested to know just in general terms (and without giving away analysis of course) whether you reckon Pavlovic has new ideas/moves to present or whether he's happy just suggesting older lines if they fit the strategic aim. Of course some of these systems are a lot more cutting-edge than others anyway. I seem to recall reading somewhere that that 6 Nc3 anti-KID might be rather anodyne after 6 ...d5, but I see that Andersson wasn't fazed! But (e.g.) the Catalan with Qxc4 is heavyweight stuff -- with so many defences seemingly worked out, does P. seem to justify his choice?

Chapter Eight, The Dutch Defence, starts with 1.d4 f5 2.g3 Nf6 3.Bg2. It has 2 games with a quick Bf4 against the Stonewall. Against the Classical there is 1 game with 3...e6 4.Nf3 Be7. Pavlovic plays 5.b3 0-0 6.Bb2 d6 7.0-0, where Sielecki plays 5.0-0 0-0 6.c4. The Leningrader also has 1 game, where Pavlovic plays 4.Nf3 Bg7 5.0-0 0-0 6.Nbd2 d6 7.Re1 Nc6 8.e4, where Sielecki plays 6.b3.

Chapter Seven, The KID, has 8 KID games. Pavlovic plays the Fianchetto Variation with 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 g6 3.g3 Bg7 4.Bg2 0-0 5.0-0 d6 6.Nbd2 (3 times), but also with 6.Nc3 (5 times), where Sielecki plays 6.b3. There is 1 game with the symmetrical Grunfeld (5...d5 without (6.)c4, which Sielecki plays) with 6.Bf4!? There is also 1 game with 5...c5 where both Pavlovic and Sielecki play 6.dxc5. Finally there is 1 game with 3...b6 4.Bg2 Bb7 5.c4 Bg7 6.0-0 0-0 7.Nc3, which is also played by Sielecki.

No, but he does mention the Closed Catalan with c6 in Chapter Four.

In the Slav lines does he also mention 3 ...c6 with an early 4...e6? Not sure why anyone wants to lock in the white squared bishop when they have the opportunity of playing 4...Bf5/Bg4 but they seem to....(perhaps triangle system players have great faith in their system!)

Looking forward to your comments on how he handles the Indian systems (i.e. mainlines or other).

Thanks TD.
