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.

The Panov–Botvinnik Attack begins with the move 4.c4. It is named after Vasily Panov and the world champion Mikhail Botvinnik. This system often leads to typical isolated queen’s pawn (IQP) positions, with White obtaining rapid development, a grip on e5, and kingside attacking chances to compensate for the long-term structural weakness of the isolated d4-pawn. Here Bill shows you a system that has become the standard for experienced players.
