    Although I won't choose 1.c4 to play the English from the white side, I do occassionally play 1...c5 to lead to the symmetrical system, I enjoyed this lesson I think it will help me in future games.

    Helpful.  I'm new to English (the opening, not the language), and this was a very clearly explained dip into it.  Nicely done.

    I'm also interested in the Botvinnik system for white. Thanks Roman!

    I'm glad to hear that you've refuted an opening system named after and recommended by a World Champion and one of the best innovators and theoriticians of all time! Cool

    Botvinik system leads to equal play or slightly better for black, the variations roman suggests is much stronger ;)

    Thank you, Roman!  My vote again for the Botvinnik system if you can/want!  I hope there is interest from other members too...
