BUrgess wrote a good book, but you may be interested to know he goes for Bf4 in the QGD rather than the old mainline, Bg5

Burgess covers that position in A Cunning Chess Opening Repertoire For White 2013), although via the 1 d4 d5 2 Nf3 Nf6 3 c4 e6 4 Nc3 move order.

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 playing the white side of 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Nc3, but don't know from where to start. I have a good line against the Semi-Slav, but need something against the rest of Black's defences. Ambitious mainlines are preferred.

Any source recommendations?
