Early c5 in Tartakower
The opening of today's game in Qatar by Kramnik caught my eye. Actually he played it last year in Qatar as well and a handful of his elite colleagues have been giving it a try.
With the first ga...

Andreikin-Kramnik, World Cup R3
Anyone else check out this game?
[Event "FIDE World Chess Cup"]
[White "Andreikin, Dmitry"]
I am not an expert in the QGD by any means, but 9...c5!? seems kind of unusual, but interesting. At the very least I thought Kramnik's position was quite appealing after 16...Qc6.
According to my understanding from the White side, 10.dxc5 should be tried. I wonder what Kramnik's idea was here? I analyzed quite a few ...d4 ideas after 10...Nc6, but nothing seemed to totally work. Black does have a lot of ways to head into 2B vs. 2N positions down a pawn, but I'm not sure about any of them.
Will post more when I get home from work and have access to a database and computer.

Cambridge Springs style trap
I'm sure most of us are aware of the dangers of the normal placing of a Bishop on d3 in the Cambridge Springs and some of us have even set the trap with the Black pieces.
In the 2014 World Junior...

Can you play for win with QGD (Tartakower etc.)
After several years of trying offbeat lines, I am planning to pick up a standard line which doesn't require regular "theory study" to stay alive in open tournaments. I am an IT professional with aroun...

Cambridge springs/ QGD / Semi-Slav sideline
I´m preparing to play the 5.Bg5 Semi-Slav and here Black can play
1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Nf3 e6 5.Bg5 Nbd7 which converts into the QGD-Cambridge-Springs system. Amateur players (let´s say b...

I still remember a defence called Tartakower!
Long, long ago I bought a book about the slav. I tried it because I wanted to surprise my friends... everyone played the Tartakower. Fischer, Spassky, Kortchnoi, Petrosian played it a lot. Sometimes w...

Lasker variation-esc line vs the catalan
I just began playing the lasker variation of the QGD. What line is similar in style to the lasker that could be played against the catalan?

Anyway to get White advantage in this line?
7.Nc3 dxc4(?! I always thought that it is bad to allow White to develop his bishop in 1 move)

My next opponent plays cambridge springs; nowadays it´s played quite seldom, so I´m not familiar with the current theory, for example NCO evaluates this line between "=" and unclear.

1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Nf3 Bb4 5.cxd5 exd5 6.Bg5
It seems as though 6...Nbd7 has become the most common or fashionable response at this point, but there appear to be three other options that...

Ragozin for white: Carlsen & Dreev play Qa4+
I was just looking up alternatives to the move order:
1.Nf3 d5 2.d4 e6 3.c4 Nf6 4.Nc3 Bb4 5.cd5
and came across the relatively rare 5.Qa4!? I had thought such an approach was hamfisted, but I saw Dreev and Carl...
