Newly-minted Staff Member Ben Finegold is on the payroll but he works for you! Today his first assignment was to show off the recently in-vogue 1. b3. When you leave theory quickly, you may get a short win or get dispatched with similar celerity. You'll see both today, first with Ben polishing off a friend with a zwischenzug. Then the most famous game ever in this line - the opening's namesake, GM Bent Larsen, goes down quickly to a world champ.
