Dec-04-04  Backward Development: Cg.com,
GM Bronstein and i think this is actually a Grunfeld, or neo-grunfeld more specifically.
Dec-04-04  Backward Development: of interest:
on this opening
"The choice of opening indicates mutual lack of aggressive intent. The nearly symnetrical deployments and the immobile pawn center largely presage the outcome of this game." after black's 14th move
"Here or a move earlier, White might have tried to stir up at least a semblance of a fight by playing g4, with h4 to follow. The risk would have been small; but on the other hand, it is not likely he could have broken into black's position either. So both captains decide to steer with the wind into quiet harbor."
Dec-05-04  Minor Piece Activity: I don't think anyone has thanked you for all this info yet Backward Development, so thanks. =) I've read Zurich 1953 before but never bothered to analyze it in depth, maybe I'll do that now that you made a collection.
Dec-05-04  Backward Development: thank you. it is quite a thick book, and a little intimidating at first, but taking it round by round is a good way to tackle it. or you can pick your favorite player and go through his games. then the people who beat him, etc.
May-22-13  RubinSteinitz: Thanks, Backward D, for the info on the opening label. GM Bronstein named it a Grunfeld in his book on this tournament; which fits the opening better in my opinion. I need to study the King's Indian Defense: Fianchetto Variation. Immediate Fianchetto. Maybe there is something there I can use. It certainly isn't a commonly used weapon.
