When you add the Slav to your repertoire, you get an opening with a solid foundation. However, that doesn’t mean you will get a boring game. On the contrary, this opening often leads to very dynamic play. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that many of the world class players of today, including Carlsen, Caruana and Firouzja have played it frequently, and used it to play for a win against their contemporaries.

In the Slav Defence Black supports his d-pawn with 2...c6. Compared to the move 2...e6 this has the advantage of not blocking in Black’s Bc8, and it makes it possible, in the event of 3.cxd5, to recapture on d5 with a pawn and thus to maintain a central pawn on d5. The Slav Defence enjoys the reputation of being one of the safest and most solid replies to the Queen’s Gambit. It is very popular in both top tournaments and also amateur tournaments.=> More products: Slav Defence
