Reading between the lines

Sometimes games are interesting not because of what has been played, but because of what hasn’t been played. In this brand new Dragon-encounter the frenchman with two names, chose a move-order against Naka that avoids both, the Chinese Dragon and the Topalov Variation. That wouldn’t be anything special if it had not come at a price. White can’t go for the the official refutation of the Dragon 12. Kb1 anymore. What does MVL tell us? Either the Chinese Dragon or the Topalov Variation is safe to play (or both)!
