The QGD Exchange against the Triangle setup seems like a popular way for White to avoid the Noteboom and the Semi-Slav etc. But can Black take advantage of this particular move order, or is it best to...

6.dxc5 Nf6!? in the Tarrasch
Hey guys.
I always found the 6.dxc5 line in the Tarrasch (1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 c5 4.cxd5 exd5 5.Nf3 Nc6 6.dxc5!) to be slightly annoying.

A weird gambit in the Tarrasch
Hello there!
Being primarily an e4 player, I try to alternate with 1.c4 without embarking on too much d4 theory, and in this respect 1.c4 e6 proves rather challenging.
