If he thinks a Kramnik could then play some form of Queen's gambit, or the Catalan. That is a monster of an opening and you have to be well prepared against it, and it is pretty different from the Queen's gambit declined. But I have a big problem with two lines (I suppose because I just love these lines as white, and don't get excited about them as black just yet) Those are the Queen's Gambit declined exchange variation (my usual repertoire choice as it rules out the Cambridge Springs variation) I just dont LOVE black here. An ancient, solid and interesting opening. This is slightly counter-intuitive to me, but perhaps I have been conditioned too much by old-fashioned opening manuals who treated the Queen's Gambit and the Catalan as entirely different complexes. Chernev finds no flaw in opening the d-file while White's rook eyes Black's queen along it. Black then continues 15Bg4 and after 16.Qd3 he has 16Rae8 17.Nd2 and now 17f5 or 17Re6, to name just a few of the more characteristic ideas. I thought that Shakhriyar was choosing between bringing the bishop out to f4 or g5. An attempt to force the exchange on c3, which will reduce black's presence in the centre, and moreover… if white takes with the b2 pawn then the d4 point will be significantly strengthened. 4…Be7 The Queen's Gambit Declined. In order to prevent this easy attacking plan, the ingenious 15.Re4 has been tried. Rather, he points out a general principle in the Queen's Gambit: Black delays capturing the offered pawn until it gains a tempo. Against 1.e4 Topalov defends with the Najdorf if he wants to play for a win with Black, sometimes he varies with the Sveshnikov.
