Can we have some coverage of this variation
1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Bg5 Bb4+ 5.Nbd2 dxc4.
It's not covered in any of the updates or the pdf ebooks.

QGD mainline sources for white?
Hello everyone,
It seems like all the recent repertoire books are for black, whereas authors from the white side always recommend the exchange variation or the Catalan.
I'm interested in pla...

Chess Explained : The Queen's Gambit Declined
By Rizzitano
What do you think of this book ?
Does it deal adequately with Ragozin and Vienna variation ?
Would you recommend it on these lines ?
