GM Perelshtyen shows how to employ the Exchange Variation as he often has at the GM Level. The Exchange Variation 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.exd5 cxd5 is a very subtle line for white to fight for a long-term positional advantage based on a rapid development of your two bishops that will make it very difficult in turn for black to develop his bishops to active diagonals.

Chess Fans have said: GM Perelshteyn’s lecture was excellent as always.
GM Eugene Perelshteyn was born in Ukraine and learned chess from his father, a FIDE Master. He moved to the United States at the age of fourteen and won the U.S. U18 Championship in 2000. Eugene earned a chess scholarship from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, where he graduated in computer science. In 2002 he was awarded the Samford Chess Fellowship – given to the top American Player under 25 years old – which helped him earn the GM title in 2006.
Eugene currently lives in Massachusetts, and competes mainly in New England. He is a regular contributor to ChessLecture.com, and is co-author of two books: Chess Openings for White, Explained and Chess Openings for Black, Explained, both in their second editions.
