Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 Bg7 6. e4 d6 {By transpos ition we have reached a Sicilian Defense, the Maroczy Bind Variation where White's twin pillars at e4 and c4 restrict Black's options, but the bishop at g7 can become powerful.} 7. Be2 O-O 8. O-O Nc6 9. Be3 Bd7 10. Qd2 a6 11. f3 Qa5 12. Nb3 Qd8 { Black has invested some time in luring the White knight away from d4.} 13. Rfd1 b6 14. Rac1 {White stands better due to his better development and bind on the light squares.} 14... Rb8 15. Kh1 { If the position opens up White's king will be safer tucked away in the corner.} 15...
