The Tarrasch Variation

Black's QP setting attacked White's undefended KP.
White develops Queen's Kt to Q2(d2) to defend his KP, avoid the Winawer pin (3.Kt-QB3..B-QKt5) and allow P-QB3 to guard his centre. Most popular alternative to 3.Kt-QB3 although it blocks his QB in part and allows Black an IQP (isolated QP). W-Alt.
	White	Black
