    Reliable Solution to 3.e4

    Below, we shall briefly take a look at the different lectures.

    Must-Know Positional and Tactical Ideas

    GM-Grigor-Grigorov-8c926c1098

    This lecture features the most important structure that every QGA player should know - the isolated queen's pawn. This structure arises in the systems with e2-e3. Even though IQP can be a topic of an entire book, GM Grigorov tries to summarize the most essential ideas. He takes a look at the structure from the perspective of the Queen's Gambit Accepted. Besides the positional overview, GM Grigorov provides a solid base for your opening repertoire.

    The most important position of the lecture arises after 1.d4 d5 2.c4 dxc4 3.e3 Nf6 4.Nf3 e6 5.Bxc4 c5 6.0-0 cxd4 7.exd4 Be7 8.Nc3 0-0

    diagram-1-6487a7860c

    Here is how GM Grigorov introduces the topic himself:

    By immediately taking on d4, Black rules out all the annoying systems based on dxc5. On the other hand, in the arising IQP position, White enjoys a  lot of freedom. He can choose among various attacking setups. In the lecture,  I should how Black should fight against the following ideas:

    1) Setups with  Bg5

    2) The battery Bc2+Qd3

    3) Setups with Qe2 and Rd1

    4) Ideas based on d4-d5 

    In the article I discuss the following strategies:

    1) Simplification

    2) Pressure on the isolated pawn

    3) Transition into a symmetrical pawn structure. 

    At the beginning of the lecture, you will see which typical endgame positions we should avoid and what is our dream endgame scenario. After studying the lecture, I hope you will also improve your general chess understanding.

    Facing the Systems with 3.Nf3 and 3.e3 

    GM-Petar-G.-Arnaudov-887b715028

    In this lecture, GM Petar Arnaudov presents the variations with 3.e3 and 3.Nf3. Against both, he is not showing the most common lines for Black but suggests fresh and aggressive setups, which are the current trend. Against 3.e3, Black’s most principled reply is 3…e5 followed by 4.Bxc4 Nc6!?. This move is very ambitious and allows Black to fight for the initiative. Against 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.e3 e6 5.Bxc4 c5 6.0-0, Arnaudov suggests another sideline 6…Nc6!? (instead of 6…a6)

    diagram-2-1e8a45a19c

    This is the latest trend in QGA and was used quite successfully by the American GM Jeffrey Xiong and many other strong players. Now White’s choices are limited, and the analysis shows that the ball is in White’s court.

    Repertoire against the Rare Lines

    GM-Petar-G.-Arnaudov-887b715028

    In this lecture GM Arnaudov analyzes the rare lines: 4.Qa4, 4.Na3, 4.g3 and 4.Nc3.

    diagram-3-059927b704

    He believes that 4.Na3? is simply a mistake after which White is fighting for equality. 4.g3 and 4.Qa4 are more serious moves and contain some danger for an unprepared player, but the analysis shows that Black has nothing to worry about. The strongest is the continuation 4.Nc3 which is quite underrated but contains a lot of poison. With an accurate play, Black can equalize against it, but the second player needs to be well prepared and remember several forced lines.

     Theoretical Overview of 3.e4

    GM-Vladimir-Georgiev-a655e43754

    In this lecture, GM Vladimir Georgiev provides an extensive theoretical overview of the line 1.d4 d5 2.c4 dxc4 3.e4

    diagram-4-ae9cef0354

    In the lecture, as well as in the PGN file, GM Vladimir Georgiev analyzes all the important lines that Black can employ. Of course, he shares his personal preferences and suggestions. In the lecture, you will find high-class analysis and many new ideas.

    Bonus Material - Reliable Solution to 3.e4

    GM-Grigor-Grigorov-8c926c1098

    In this bonus video, GM Grigorov offers a very practical solution against 1.d4 d5 2.c4 dxc4 3.e4. His choice is based on 3...Nf6 4.e5 Nd5 5.Bxc4 Bf5

    diagram-5-ac5bffd20a

    This relatively rare move is gaining popularity recently. A number of top players have already played it. In his analysis, GM Grigorov proves that this system is highly reliable for Black. If you want to avoid studying a lot of theory and enjoy a sound position, this is your choice!
