I am think of trying this variation out. I know it's supposed to be a solid play for white. Has anyone here played it with success? I would like to know what the basic plans and ideas are for white and what ot look out for.
Funny you mentioned that.
I have been studying this very variation this week.
Smyslov and Suttles have both played it.
I have an old Solits pamplet titled A Complete Opening System For White With 1. P-K4, and it is his recommendation.
There is also decent coverage of it in Gary Lane's Vienna Game (although I really hate the print out games and call it an opening manual format).
