  5. Bf4 in the Queen's Gambit and the Exchange Slav

    Bf4 in the Queen's Gambit and the Exchange Slav

    $29.95

    Alexey Dreev analyses many different ways for White to fight for the opening advantage in two modern schemes, in the Slav Defense and in the Queen's Gambit Declined. His choice in the Slav Defense is the exchange variation, which is becoming more and more popular among the average level chess players, as well as at top level. It looked like Black could equalize, but lately White often managed to create problems for Black. By playing 3.cxd5, after the moves 1 d4 d5 2.c4 c6, White tries to obtain an advantage, but also avoids the main lines of the Slav Defense, which may arise following 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Nf3 dxc4.

Establishing central control gives Black good chances to launch an attack against the enemy king. On this DVD Grandmaster Daniel King offers you a repertoire for Black with the QGD. Learn More

    $33.95

Against 3.e4 they recommend 3...Nc6 4.Nf3 Nf6!?, against 3.e3 they choose 3...e5! and against 3.Nf3 their weapon of choice is 3...Nf6 4.e3 Bg4!? Other choices and drawish alternatives are given.

    In this line of the Tarrasch, White forgoes the fianchetto, with its direct play against d5, opting to keep central tension for the moment by playing 4. e3, after which 4... Nf6 5. Nf3 Nc6 is the normal continuation. Dennis shows us how Black blasts through this and wins the day. Learn More
