1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Bf4 - Complete Repertoire for White (Approx. 2.5 hours Video Running Time) 

After the standard opening moves 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6, White has a typical choice between 3.Nf3, 3.Nc3 and 3.g3. All three lead to big opening variations in which the theory branches deeply and widely. Sometimes white players avoid this early by playing 2.Bf4 (the London system), 2.Bg5 (the Trompowsky attack) or 2.Nc3 (the Veresov Attack), trying to get a less theoretical type of game. However, all these systems have a downside in that White usually delays or altogether omits to play c2-c4, which decreases his influence on the centre. That said, it might be possible to get the best of both worlds by playing 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Bf4!?, a variation that has been largely unexplored throughout chess history.

1.d4 f5 2.Bg5 - Expert Repertoire for White (3h Running Time)  Discounted 

Given the rising popularity of the Dutch Defence, finding a reliable antidote is crucial for every 1.d4 player. In this database, GM Michael Roiz suggests a very dangerous and practical system - 1.d4 f5 2.Bg5. By pinning the e7-pawn, White immediately makes it difficult for Black to proceed with the development. Besides stopping the setups based on ...e7-e6, White is ready to answer 2...Nf6 with 3.Bxf6, thus getting a fantastic version of the Trompowsky. Regardless of whether your opponent likes Stonewall or Leningrad structures, the system with 2.Bg5 will definitely take him out of his comfort zone. Moreover, in this survey, GM Roiz shows that even objectively Black does not have equality in this system.
