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?


Perhaps 4...Bb4 5.Bd2 Bd2 6.Qd2 0-0, but the Catalan and Lasker QGD are completely different openings. It's like asking for a defence to 1.d4 that offers the same pawn structure as the Sveshnikov Sicilian.
  

All our dreams come true if we have the courage to pursue them.

Well, Black's most conservative method in the open Catalan is ...Be7, ...O-O, and ...dxc4 played in some order.  I don't know that I would call any of Black's Catalan tries analogous to Lasker's.
