Well, isn't that exactly what Avrukh recommends in Beating 1. d4 Sidelines?

Thanks Martin. There is one player in the region I play who plays this exclusively. I had a decent position with Bf5 and c6 the last time we played but I'll feel almost vindicated to be playing something that "exploits" the delayed c4.
All the best.

Utterly nothing no. Lots of high powered GM games in various move orders.

In my rather modest experience at a half decent club player level it's very effective there as white players don't know what to do, and if white is a bit passive vs this they really don't get anywhere.

Playing the QGD and wanting to face the Catalan with a Bb4+ system, the move-order 1.d4 d5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.g3 annoys me, for no rational reason ! I know the Bf5 or Bg4 with c6 systems are supposed to be fine for Black. I've even found a Short game where he combined 3.g3 Bf5 with e6. It's just occurred to me, is there anything wrong with b5 to "punish" the delay in c4 ?
That is 1.d4 d5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.g3 e6 4.Bg2 b5 5.0-0 Bb7. Having found a game won by Kramnik as Black against Huebner, I'm sure there's nothing "wrong" with it. Anyone had any experience on either side ?
