lead in development and a better P-structure, but a clear road to an
advantage is hard to find. This is because Black has also some trumps-his
solid setup has no visible weaknesses, he has the ^^ and last, but not
least firmly controls the light squares on the >> (e6,f5,g4). } 9… Be7 {
One of the many possible alternatives. Black started playing like this only
recently and practice has proven his setup is viable even without the ^^.
All in all the Berlin defence is not so much about concrete moves and
forced variations, but about long-term plans. Especially Kramnik has
studied the nuances of the whole system very deeply, as the following
