NEW UPDATED OPENING LINE

2016-03-02 - Update Line 074[October 17, 2016] Updated Opening Line from GM Dragan Paunović:
Trompowsky Attack with 2… e6

[Line 074 : 1. d4 Nf6 2. Bg5 e6]

Reacting with 2… e6 against the Trompowsky Attack is one of the soundest ways to play it with Black, since it doesn’t allow White to double his opponent’s pawns after capturing on f6, and it also does not expose the knight by moving it to e4. White usually gets more space, but Black gets a bishop pair, like in the main line after 3. e4 h6 4. Bxf6 Qxf6. This line is often a choice that many top players opt for when faced with the Trompowsky Attack.

Position on the diagram is an important one to know, because it keeps appearing in so many games. Sometimes even some very strong grandmasters were on the receiving end of an elegant tactical blow that brings White quite close to winning a full point. Do you know this opening trap?
