    I am sorry but you are only focusing on what black can do assuming that after D4 white is always playing C4. What if after putting the knight in F6 (according to you is the best move) white moves to D5. Will you sacrifice a knight giving white the opportunity to put his queen in the center? There is not enough elaboration on what white can do after D4 in order to response to black's opening.

    At 10:24; after black moves to b5; wouldn't that lose on the spot to a4 by white?

    I like 1...e6 and 1...Nf6 most to against 1.d4, just wait and see what's White does in next move and choose a flexible plan :)

    Yes, it was awesome. Very clear, logical explanation, good coverage of main variations - even though you did not mention my favourite Chigorin Defense will all these dangerous knights Smile. I am looking forward to seeing your original video (answers to 1.e4).

    Please continue in these high-quality general opening explanations.

    Thanks a lot

    I'm definately no beginner but I had to watch it as it was titled "1.d4" which is my own main weapon. I genuinely enjoyed watching this lecture for a few reasons... 1.d4 is king Wink, I'm not a fan of 1.e4 unless I know I'm gonna play a King's Gambit, and 1...Nf6!! (double-exclam lol Laughing) is THE best way to play for black!

    That was a really good recap for me of the basics of 1.d4 - you're a very good teacher David, awesome lecture Cool

    What about defenses to 1. c4, the English Opening?  I run into this fairly often.
