1 d4 d5 2 c4 c6 3 Nf3 dxc4 During the course of this 60 mins DVD, join with Andrew Martin as he examines a sharp line of the Slav which involves an early capture on c4. The subject matter covers 3 Nf3 dxc4!?. Without a White Knight on c3 the positon becomes radically different to the earlier line, but the idea of disruption is still the key to understanding Black's play. Black wants White to worry about the pawn on c4 and make mistakes as he tries to frantically get it back!

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
