TWIC 956

GM Zoltan Varga was in good form as he unleashed a pet line against the Caro-Kann. The result was an unbalanced equality and a nice massage on c5 and the dark squares.

Here is a nice positional game from TWIC 946 played by GM Zoltan Varga(HUN). Black chooses a QGA sideline and wins seemingly without much effort. Black gives the bishop pair up and then plays against the IQP.
