(RJ). It looks risky for White, but isn't as, due to the closed centre, Black can't use his pieces to attack White's 'weakened' kingside. The logic may be that it will be natural for Black to expand on the queenside, so it's natural for White to get in first on the kingside - so it may as well be straight away, particularly as White can do so with tempi by kicking around the bishop.
