IM Fries Nielsen Wins with Rinor

IM Jens Ove Fries Nielsen sent me this note about the Rinor!
"Dear friend!
"I saw your little article concerning the opening 1.d4 d5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.Bf4!? I would like to add some comments.
"First I have played this System which I have given the name Rinor since 2011, long before Jobaba, Rapport, etc. with a total of 150 games!
"Second, I have nice wins against some strong GMs such as Grandelius, Hector, and Tukhaev, but have played it against a lot of other GMs.
"It has nothing to do with Veresov in my opinion. I consider strongly to write a book over the Rinor. At last one of my most funny games with the Rinor.
Best wishes,
Jens Ove Fries Nielsen

  1. Lol! Unbelievable! Mind you, the position transposed to a Veresov at move 5, so maybe the Rinor & Veresov have at least a little in common ;).

    1. Yes Kevin, very funny. We run into that in the BDG Bogo 6.Bf4 and 6.Bg5 with 7.Qd2 and soon Bh6. But the Rinor seems to be more a little aggressive than the Veresov in most lines, at least the way Fries Nielsen plays it.
