Presented by International Grandmaster Eugene Perelshtyen for ChessLecture.com
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.
