     "The Motzko Variation certainly has to be respected. 
     In modern tournament chess, the obvious candidate to
turn to is Andrei Sokolov who has adopted the line. The Russian grandmaster, who now resides in France, can be an exceptional player and in the 1980s was ranked third in the world behind Kasparov and Karpov."
