Are there any theoretical problems with the line [1 d4 d5 2 c4 dxc4] 3 Nf3 a6 - ? I've begun looking at it, and it seems like a rather attractive solution to Black's problems:

A new look at the GQA
I was hoping to start a new thread on this less popular try. Why dont more people take the pawn.
What do the white players think about whites chances and what do the black players aim for.

Are you really prepared for the QGA
This opening really seems to be ideal for amateur play(sub 2400 elo), which is 99% of the chess community. When I say Ideal I am implying that it seems that many white players just aren't prepared for...

Delaying ...c5
