U.S. Championship: Bogo-Indian

Want to play the Nizmo, but don't want to chase the theory of the related Queen's Indian? The Bogo-Indian remains an option. Shabalov's novelty is 10.c5, and this is after the dubious but sometimes played 8.Be3. White has the better of the opening after the usual 8.e3, and there should be no reason to go looking for virgin ground quite so early in these lines. Of course, it could be that Shabalov was surprised by the Bogo.
