<<<<Game of the Month March [SOS-4, Chapter 4, p.35]>>>

To be defeated by your own opening weapons, that must be one of the nightmares of modern top players. A case in point is a recent game from the Moscow Open. Spanish IM Alexander Ipatov managed to defeat Russian GM Sergey Volkov with one of his own pet systems. A system incidentally on which Volkov had written for SOS-4. The cruel irony is that Ipatov follows one of Volkov's recommendations from SOS-4. The game presents a good opportunity to test your tactical abilities!>
