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

Opening: E12: Queen's Indian defense

Player(s): Yermolinsky, Kelson, Mulyar, Stein

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 1 deals with Kasparov's favorite structure featuring the central pawn pair d4 and e4. Most likely, I was never the right man for the job, but with time I learned how to handle such positions. Surprisingly, moving the e-pawn forward and leaving the d-pawn backward represents White's main plan. You can download the games in PGN format HERE
