Black tries C8=7

We will continue discussing the Big Variation of the ODC in this board. After going through the first two boards, we see that red basically still has a firm grip on the game.
Black tries a radical new approach by playing C8=7 on the 3rd move. This is an interesting attempt but the results are not that good or mixed at best. However, I suggest that we go through the boards because the "improvements" made generally show the line of thinking or the evolution of openings over the past 50 years. You might even see shades of other openings here. LOL.
Again, the reader is encouraged to go through the Ancient manuals,
in particular The Secret in the Tangerine and The Plum Flower Manuals to get a hang of the opening.
I have included two boards for your perusal to compare variations in case you get lost.

Back to page 02 ...
On to page 04 for more on the ODC ... black tries another approach for the big variation.
