Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-10-07  Knight13: 3...Qd7 is a passive way (maybe) to play the QGA. You lose a tempo playing ...Qf6, you block your pieces from ...d7 (when Black would want to play ...c5 or ...e5 to counter the center).

Also 7...Nf6 can be delayed and ...a6 be played, as you can see that the knight on b5 annoys Black and prevents him from playing ...c5.

...both of which lets White build a strong center and have a plus score, as Black had to waste 2 more tempos to replace the knight to d7 in order to play e5 or c5. By that time is a little bit too late, in my opinion.

Aug-29-18  Saniyat24: seems this is the first game in which 3...Qd7 was played against 3.Qa4+
Apr-09-19  64Go: black is losing tempi too with the queen exchange. black can do better
