Seems someone is secretly cooking something in his kitchen...Kamsky look out!

Mar-25-08  Voltaic: it could be or it could be simply that he's using it mainly for Amber. maybe he got tired of too many najdorfs. now, what wd happen if he decides to change his style? answer: we could end with a new positionally quiet Topy.
