  tpstar: Standard Maroczy Bind formation with Be2 & Be3 against Be7 & Bd7. Then 10. Rc1 leaves the Queen on d1 to hinder ... Ng4 ideas, followed by 11. Kh1. Instructive maneuver here (12. Nb3 & 13. Nd2) repositioning the KN to play 14. f4 & 15. b4 and White has a great game. Technically 4 ... Bd7 has independent significance Opening Explorer because after 5. Nc3 Nc6 White can safely transpose into a Sozin (6. Bc4) since there's no chance of facing ... Bb7.
