Queen’s Indian Defense – Standard chess #47

I was white in this game and went with a d4 based setup. I was a bit suprised when my opponent opted for the Queen’s Indian Defense. Not because the Queen’s Indian Defense is bad or anything along those lines, but rather because just before I began recording for this video I was reviewing many of the AlphaZero vs Stockfish 8 games, and in the majority of those games the Queen’s Indian Defense was played! Could I take a little of what I’ve learned from AlphaZero and somehow apply it in this game? The Rapid time control for this game is 15 minutes with a 10 second increment.

I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.
