♕ FULL VIDEO ►: www.onlinechesslessons.net ♕ MORE INFO ►: www.onlinechesslessons.net facebook.com | twitter.com The Kopec System is an effective sideline for white against the Sicilian Defense, employing a strange maneuver very early in the opening that guarantees white a solid set-up with 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6/Nc6 3. Bd3. The Kopec System looks very strange after 3. Bd3, however white´s idea is to form a strong center with pawns on e4 and d4 – normally leading to positions very similar to the Ruy Lopez. Although white´s 3. Bd3 move looks very weird and breaks a fundamental rule of blocking in his d2-pawn and thus c1-bishop, white will soon play 4. c3 and 5. Bc2 – tucking the bishop safely on c2 after which white will be ready to gain space in the center with a well-prepared d4 push. White´s bishop maneuver takes a good amount of time, especially so early in the opening – however black is simply unable to exploit this because white is typically able to keep the position closed. While the Kopec System is certainly not a mainstream opening in 21st century chess, it is occasionally employed at the top levels – for example Super-GM Fabiano Caruana employed a variation of the Kopec System at the 6th Kings Tournament in November, 2012 against fellow Super-GM Veselin Topalov! In the follow chess video excerpt from the chess DVD ¨The Kopec System¨ – the opening´s creator IM Dr. Danny Kopec explains the fundamental ideas of this interesting sideline.
