GM Yermolinsky - What it takes to be a complete 1.d4 player - Queen’s Indian - Vd 3

Opening: E12: Queen's Indian Defense

Player(s): Yermolinsky, Ivanov, Burnett

The previous two-video series on the Nimzo left some viewers not fully satisfied with the scarcity of material. How come I only played the white side of the Nimzo a handful of times? The answer is, I avoided it, by choosing, instead, to take the game into the Queens Indian Defense, which I most often answered with Petrosian's move 4.a3. My choice was heavily influenced by a success the future World Champion Garry Kasparov had with this line in the early 1980's.
Video 3 deals with a different pawn structure arising from the recapture on d5 with the e-pawn. The tempo White spent on the 4.a3 move gives Black hope his hanging pawns may provide for counterplay. You can download the games in PGN format HERE
