Moscow Variation
Can someone tell me a thing or two about the Moscow Variation for White? I heard that it is ultra-solid for Black, with a lot of counterpunches. What is a good line against the moscow?

Checked the main lines of the Noteboom for the last days, and it seems that simply no line to a white advantage exists. But - as this line is not very topical (to be modest) among top grandmasters - I...

Anti-Moscow 10. h4 Rg8!?
Recently had this move played against me online. By keeping the pawn on g5, Black tries to solidify the kingside so he can develop his queenside bits and castle long. Since it was 3 minute blitz, i di...

Be7 instead of Bd6 in Semi-Slav
I've come across this line in blitz:
1. d4 d5 2. c4 c6 3. Nf3 Nf6 4. e3 e6 5. Nc3 Be7
