The Richter–Veresov Attack (or Veresov Opening) is a chess opening that begins with the moves: 1. d4 d5; 2. Nc3 Nf6; 3. Bg5. The opening dates back as far as the game Marshall-Wolf, Monte Carlo 1902. In modern play, it has been used by Spassky, Tal, Smyslov, Bronstein, Larsen and even Karpov.

LM Dana Mackenzie is a USCF Life Master, a Ph.D. mathematician, and award-winning mathematics and science journalist and author. LM Dana Mackenzie started playing tournament chess during the ‘Fischer boom’ of 1971-72 and for some reason never quit. He was the champion of North Carolina in 1985 and 1987 and became a master in 1988. In 2009, Dana received his Life Master certificate from the USCF, and in 2012 was a member of the West regional champion team in the US Amateur Team tournament.
His most memorable game was in 2006, a victory over IM David Pruess, a game later featured as Game of the Day by Chessgames on November 23, 2011. That same game so impressed then-IM Jesse Kraai that he invited Dana to give a lecture on it – on this site, where Dana has delivered more than 100 lectures since.
IM Valeri Lilov is a young chess talent from the small European country of Bulgaria. He is based in Varna, Bulgaria and has been working as a successful chess coach and lecturer over the internet for more than seven years.
