To V or not to V?!
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

If it's good enough for Viktor, Vladimir, or Vinny it's good enough for me.

Eventually, many games feature Nc3 and some fianchetto Bg2's. Most 3.f4's have been removed because of space considerations. Bc4 has snuck in here instead for the time being.

Steinitz had some bold ideas, followed by Spielmann. Smyslov and Spassky are the two giants to study. Short and Shirov played a few and need more exploring.

B24-26 is the Closed variety. Most 3.f4 Grands have been removed but the Bg2's remain. All kinds of Bg2 mammals are in Hungary. See prime rib for more SCs and C-K stuff. Thank you prime rib!
