GM Yermolinsky - What it takes to be a complete 1.d4 player - Queen’s Indian - Vd 2

Opening: E12: Queen's Indian defense

Player(s): Yermolinsky, Tukmakov, Kuzmin, Ivanov

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 1980s.
Video 2 is devoted to a sideline where White recaptures on c3 with the queen. The resulting structure is rather typical for Queens Gambit Declined, and I felt comfortable in it, although the results I achieved were a bit disappointing. You can download the games in PGN format HERE
