Every Russian Schoolboy Knows: Revolution Revisited - Part 17

Opening: E12: Queen's Indian - 4.a3

Player(s): Li Chao, Tomashevsky

The Petrosian QID was where the young Garry Kasparov made his bones. His victories over Marjanovic, Ivkov, and Portisch, all starting with 7.e3 to get a mobile pawn center, and soon featuring the energetic breakthrough d4-d5, were simply magnificent. Yet, after suffering a setback in the first game of his match with Korchnoi, who cleverly employed a Gruenfeld setup with 7...g6!, Garry switched to playing 7.Qc2, and this is where theory developed for the next 30 years. Lately, White has made an effort to return to 7.e3, preparing to meet Black's DSB fianchetto with a sharp thrust h2-h4. On this subject I have a recent game to present.
