Sveshnikov 101: 9.Nd5...11.c4

Radjabov doesn't often get pushed off the board as in the game below.  The first move to pay attention to is 11.c4.  The notion is to secure the d5 square--the oft-stated drawback is that White does so while lagging in development.  This line deserves exploration.  Much more often played--about 10 times more often--is 11.c3.

  1. Gary,

    I hope you are successful in the current USCF election. The United States Chess Federation needs more individuals with impressive credentials and an honest passion for chess. Please consider referring your readers to my "Open Letter to Mayor Newsom Post." The city of San Francisco has shut down the legendary Market Street chess games and this decision needs to be reversed.
