If the CIA had files on opening theory, then consider GM Dzindzi a latter-day Daniel Ellsburg. He didn't steal the files so much as he wrote them! Today you get the most well-researched look at an opening that Roman doesn't even name. Still, Kasparov and our author have used it. Black goes for center pawn advances at the expense of his king - a high-risk/high-reward endeavor. You'll also see a position that was considered equal until GM Lev Polugaevsky changed everything in one simple stroke!
