GM Petrov’s 10 Sharp Lines to become a Blitz Wizard - Vd10: A rare line in the Slav Defense

Opening: D11: QGD Slav: 3.Nf3


GM Petrov shows you a rare line in Slav defense in this video. Black takes dxc4 on move 3 and then tries to defend the pawn with b5 or Be6. White has many possibilities on move 4. We will take a look at e3, e4 Nc3, and a4. After e3, black can go Be6 immediately because Ng5 is losing after Qa5. After this, the idea is to meet Ng5 with Bd5 and after e4 to play h6. The position is complicated, and if you know the line well, you can gain time, as for white is more tricky to find how to win the pawn back. If he goes 4.e4, there is no Be6 anymore, and you can try b5 with a sharp game.
