Chess Fans have said: Interesting! A pretty nice variation that first originated in some of GM Motwani’s games. It really gives new blood to a quite old classical opening. Its major merit to me is that it gives the Black nice opportunities to equalize without much pain. Believe me…only after this lecture I started playing the system recommended by GM Eugene Perelshteyn. I am thrilled and have won several games even against stronger players. Black does get good development. A lot of the players are not familiar with this. Many thanks, Eugene.
