A Universal Weapon 1.d4 d6 by Vladimir Barsky covers this line. Here is a link to the excerpt.

There is some coverage in Vigorito's KID section (https://www.chesspublishing.com/content/9/index.htm, see [A40]), but I suppose it will mostly lead to English Opening positions, after 3 Nc3 or 3 Nf3 (where it is classified as [A21]) and has a large ChessPub Guide to itself.

The four pages of coverage in Zude / Hickl (2017) Play 1...d6 Against Everything is not great. They have one annotated game without much depth in the sidelines.
Rahotomaharo - Gharamian, Paris 2015 https://www.365chess.com/view_game.php?g=3949573
1.d4 d6 2.c4 e5 3.dxe5 dxe5 4.Qxd8+ Kxd8 5.Nf3 f6 6.Nc3 c6 7.Rg1 Be6 8.e3 (helps black, but the authors make no comment) 8...Nh6.

Yrjola / Tella (2001) An Explosive Chess Opening Repertoire for Black have only three pages, but it is much denser. They give as "one of the most critical tries" 1.d4 d6 2.c4 e5 3.dxe5 dxe5 4.Qxd8+ Kxd8 5.Nf3 f6 6.Nc3 Be6 7.b3 c6 8.Rg1! Nd7 (8...h5!?) 9.g4, and quote four game fragments.

I don't think white should play 3.dxe5. The structure favors black, so white is banking on activity and some discomfort to the black king. But if black knows just a little theory then the short-term problems evaporate, after which black can try to gradually assume the strategic initiative. Yrjola / Tella devote 35 pages to 3.Nf3 and 17 pages to 3.Nc3, and there's good reason these moves are more popular than 3.dxe5.

Similar structures come up in various openings. Everyone knows the King's Indian exchange variations, but there is also:
  1. 1.c4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5 3.cxd5 Nxd5 4.Nf3 g6 5.e4 Nxc3 6.dxc3 Qxd1+ 7.Kxd1.
    See Mednis (1983) From the Opening into the Endgame
  2. 1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7 3.c4 d6 4.Nc3 e5 5.dxe5 dxe5 6.Qxd8+ Kxd8.
    See Hillarp Persson (2005) Tiger's Modern
  3. 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 d6 3.Nc3 e5 4.dxe5 dxe5 5.Qxd8+ Kxd8.
    See Cherniaev / Prokuronov (2011) The New Old Indian

Corrected a mispelled author's name.

One thing I'm put in mind of is the fairly recent Hickl/Zude "...d6 against everything" book.  However it apparently has only ~4 pages on 3. de de 4. Qxd8+ Kxd8.

Is White's position that hopeless after 3.dxe5, 3...dxe5 and the Queens exchange?


Engines will score it as a small plus for White, hardly surprising given White's initiative and space. There's obviously a wide choice of continuations, but no clear main line approach.

The player who is better at middle games without queens and building up pressure is the one likely to win.

Are there any good books about the opening 1.d4 d6 2.c4 e5, from either side? It seems to me that recently most 1.d4 repertoire books advocate 2.e4 for White after 1...d6, avoiding the 2.c4 e5 move order. Is White's position that hopeless after 3.dxe5, 3...dxe5 and the Queens exchange?
