Some years back I wrote a book, Center Counter Uprising.  It was back when this opening was seldom played.  At about the time the book was written I also used this opening in the final  round of the 7th United States Correspondence Chess Championship.  With Black in this very strong tournament I scored 4 wins out of 4 games.

These games are at the time limit of 15 minutes per player for the entire game.  [I always like longer time limits]

I am Black in all of these games.  I will not give the names of the players who lost as that is not the purpose of this article. It is  to give people some ideas about how to play this opening from the Black side.
