   This will begin the journey through Marin's GM Rep. volumes 1-3. This is mainly for reviewing the lines from the book easily for everyone, without everyone having to PGN their own lines. Not much will be said here in this main body, for I'm certain Marin's works will do plenty of the talking for me, so no need to be redundant. And we're off!
