  tpstar: What a great game! Kudos to both players for such a fighting struggle. After 4. a3, Black often transposes to a QGD (4 ... d5) or Modern Benoni (4 ... c5) where a2-a3 becomes a tempo loss, which is a minor concern because b7-b6 might be a tempo loss, too. These matchups featuring a White duo on c4/d4 versus a Black duo on c5/d5 are always interesting; will one side get Hanging Pawns or not? Here White got an IQP, making the Bb2 passive, and d5 was easily blockaded. As a long-time QID proponent, I'm a little nervous about ... Qa8 lines, but it worked here since the Bd5 was ideally placed. After the Q&P for 2R trade, it all came down to passed Pawns; Black's cost White a piece (39. Bxc3) while White's got stood up (46 ... Rc7 47. Qxf5 Nxd7).
