The excellent theoretician GM Matthieu Cornette shares his insights about one of the most popular openings nowadays - The Ragozin defense. 

"The theory surrounding the Ragozin has developed very fast, but I have never stopped updating my files, and I am still amazed by how good this opening is. I thought it was time for me to share with you all the secrets of my favourite and most-solid line; relatively easy to play, with a good positional background, but somehow almost always forgotten by the chess literature.
