King's Indian Defence Koopmans

Bruce Koopmans and I played a King's Indian Defence in an APCT postal game in 1981. White fought for control of d5. Chances were roughly equal in that game and we drew. I got a win later in a related line vs Arno Apel in a short ICCF postal chess game when my opponent stopped playing.
