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.

A sharp Slav Vol.2
1 d4 d5 2 c4 c6 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.

A sharp Slav Vol.1
1 d4 d5 2 c4 c6 3 Nc3 dxc4! In this precise position 3...dxc4 is disruptive. Black plans ...b7-b5 and often...b5-b4 hitting the Knight on c3.

The Slav against the Reti
Contra la increíblemente flexible apertura Reti (1.Cf3), Henrik Danielsen confía en la configuración Eslava: las negras juegan d5 seguido por c6 y rápidamente desarrollan su Ac8. El GM islandés enseña muchas sutilezas y celadas que sin duda merece la pena
