What If we told you he stopped studying openings years ago?

And instead of laboring over the latest lines, checking each closely with his computer…

…he uses simple “piece path” systems to get amazing positions…

– no matter how his opponents respond!

This guy exists and we know him, his name is IM Milovan Ratkovic!

And today we wanna share his recommended system for white.
