C05: Exchange Sac 12.Bf4 Bf4 13.Nf4 Ne4 14.Ne2
I have recently played a game as Black that went:
[White "Enter New Game"]
In the game I immediately snapped off the Knight with 14...Rxf3, and I had a comfortable game after 15. Bxe4?

C00-C19: Tiviakov on Nd2
I thought it would be a good idea to start this topic, since this will be en vogue rather soon.
Does anyone have it yet? It would be interesting to know what he recommends against the Qxd5-line.

My only attempt with Black so far started off with
[pgn] 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 e5 4.dxe5 dxe4 5.Nxe4 Qxd1+ 6.Kxd1 Nc6 7.f4 Bg4+ 8.Be2 O-O-O+

C06: Tarrasch .. Nf6
I see there was some previous discussion of this on this forum ca. 2008.
However, recent games in this line seem to more heavily favor White. In particular the line with 16. Bxh7+ seems to lead t...

C07-C09: Will 3.Nd2 c5 Tarrasch be more popular ?
Due to the fact that 3.Nd2 c5 Tarrasch was played twice in Topalov-Kamsky match, will the variation be more popular now ?
What do you think ?
Though the result was 0-2, you may not blame th...

C08,C09: 3..c5 4.exd5 exd5! French Tarrasch book?
Why do so few French books have the variation 1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nd2 c5 4. exd5 exd5 instead of 4....Qxd5? 4...exd5 seems to be a complete equaliser whilst 4...Qxd5 leads to an inevitable += with sh...
