Marin's English Opening

I am very impressed by the 3-volume work that Mihail Marin did on the English Opening. It really fills in some voids that I had in my English 1.c4 and/or 1.Nf3 repertoire. I have been trying some of the lines in online blitz games and will share some of that with people here on my blog. Here is a game I played against a strong IM in the 3-minute blitz pool on ICC. It's in the so called "Fischer line" where black plays 5...e6

  1. Very nice idea! I think that I'll take into serious consideration to buy these books...
    I was so weak positional player ... and one day I did a ''favour '' to my chess, just opening my games as white with 1.c4.
    But I need to get back and study a lot. Your games are helping me to get a lot of ideas :-)
    Thanks a lot !
