June 2001 - What's New
Welcome to the June 2001 update

JUN01/01 White introduces a new idea in an old line of the Tromp. Black's sudden disorientation means that he immediately goes astray.
JUN01/02 Black chooses what is regarded as one of the most solid lines against both the Tromp and the Pseudo-Tromp. He unfortunately shows a fundamental lack of understanding of the resulting positions and is soon swept aside by his top class opponent.
JUN01/03 White clearly had somewhere else to be in this game. All the usual Torre moves are followed by a swift pawn storm on the kingside. This is the sort of game that allows White to really sink his teeth into the Torre attack. This game is definitely Torre with a capital T!
JUN01/04 I have been waiting for a new champion of the London system to emerge and maybe, just maybe, we have one. Tony Miles, with some courageous play, takes a swipe at one of Black's most successful lines.
JUN01/05 Black strikes back in this game with a different set-up, but the result has more to do with White's over-ambitious play in the early middlegame.
JUN01/06 With White playing so many successful kingside assaults in the Colle, it is no wonder that some Black players choose the other wing for their king. Here though, it is a clear case of out of the frying pan....
JUN01/07 Another powerful attacking display by White. Although Black tries desperately to narrow White's options through simplification and blocking the position.
JUN01/08 A good month for the Colle is concluded with this game, which allows White to aggressively bear his teeth, in an offbeat Chigorin.
JUN01/09 This game demonstrates what I believe to be Black's best counter to the Barry Attack. If Black knows his stuff, then he should get an equal position, in which the stronger player should prevail.
JUN01/10 If Black doesn't know exactly what he is doing in the Barry Attack, well, then this can happen...
