In this Course, I am going to show you one interesting opening line(1.b3), may be you think that is something ridiculous but I am sure that after this course you will change your opinion, little time ago Nakamura won the game against Ponomariov in a world champion by using this first move b3.

In this course, I will show you the concrete lines and concrete ideas.
