    Bf4 in the Queen's Gambit and the Exchange Slav
    Catalog Code: B0121EU

    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.
