Mar-01-04  clocked: Compare the position after 21.c4 to
Shirov vs Topalov, 2004 in this game black has the knight and rook in position for the f5 push
Feb-19-05  PinkPanther: I don't even understand Bd7 in such positons. I think it would be much more natural to bring the knight back there after a5 (after the knight comes back to b6).

  An Englishman: Good Evening: In Tal-Hjartarson 1987, White transposed into a King's Indian formation which clearly favored him. This time, Bareev transposes into a KID which favors Black. What follows is the typical King side roll-up which occurs if/when Black doesn't need to sacrifice anything.

Traditionally, Black manouvered his Nb8 to f7 via d8, creating a formation with pawns on f6, g6, and h7, and "doubled" Knights on f7 and g7. Very tough defensive formation, but lacking much in the way of counterplay. Bareev's idea of placing the Knight on e7 is interesting, gambling on obtaining the King side attack with ...f7-f5, while covering the h6 square with ...Ng8.
