Nf3 Bg7 4. g3 {The fianchetto variation versus any Black Indian defenses.} c6 5. Bg2 d5 {Other move is 5...d6 would be typical King's Indian setup.} 6. b3 {This move confirms pawn support, but soon will be exposed to direct attack.} dxc4 7. bxc4 c5 8. Bb2 cxd4 9. Nxd4 {The isolated c-pawn is now a part of a problem, white must consider.} 0-0 10. 0-0 Ng4 { Standard knight maneuver when a weakness is just around the corner.} 11. e3 Ne5 12. Qe2 Nbc6 13.
