    It is the Kopec system indeed played by IM Daniel Kopec. I had the chance to play IM Kopec in chess ( and loss rather badly) when he lived in the town of Niantic, Ct. back around 1994/95 or so. Anyway there was as local chess club that i belonged to, we were no competition for him ( our average rating might have been 1700, he was over 2400 anyway) but he was kind enought to stop in every other week, play some blitz, give some stuff to know. You know he had these  real thick eyeglasses and we would think yeah just snag the glasses, but then he gave us as blindfold chess exhibition ' nuff said. He played a simul for the greater SE Conn, RI area and i think won like 49 out of 50 with a draw to the grand ole man of the region. IM Kopec was kind enough to let many of us play 2 games as he would just demolish us ( how cool is that 2 games for the price of admission with an IM) He even had his good friend GM Walter Brown come out for a visit, and brough him to the club, where GM Brown played us at 5 to 1 time odds and just destroyed us, i mean just smash, bash, crash, you wilt under the lash. ( real bad i know been watchin IM Rensch's stuff) i mean GM Brown was the US champ of '73, and played and beat Bobby Fisher i believe ( not sure of that) Anyway its kinda of cool to have a little obscure trivia to add to this. I hope IM Kopec is still with us, Pete from Niantic says hi, as does George, Charley, Dan, Tom, et al. Incidentally he advised us all to abandon opening theory, endgame theory, and focus on the middlegame, he told us your best hope to beat a better play is to play for complex sharp midgames.

    A GM or IM or Master will crush you in most endgames, out prepare you  in opening prep, but in between the gods put the midgame and that is where you have a chance, and most club players eschew combinations and calculation  ...he also advised club players play caro slav strutures as black- Caro Kann, Lasker Defense,  and play the Scotch Gambit, Morra Smith Gambit, and QGD's as white, and to look for obscure lines of play ie the Cozio defense in the Ruy Lopez. well anyway got busy with life around then, did not play chess til Oct. of 12 via this site, had forgotten all my bad habits and now play as he advised with ok results ( for whatever that is worth) peace

    Black should always strive for equilibrium in position and tempo but the take of the c4 pawn did not really estimate that property correctly in my honest opinion!

    Awesome display of dynamic thought in the development of attack.  Great job!

    It's called the Kopek system I believe.
