Queen's Gambit Declined--Slav Defense, Exchange Variation
The Queen's Gambit is a good opening if White is seeking to give Black a challenging game. It is usually declined by Black and a popular way to decline it is with the Slav Defense. My coach recommends responding with the Exchange Variation.
We will start with a simple way for White to trap black.
If 15... RxQ white gets a family fork when he captures Black's Rook with his Knight.
This is the easiest way to play against the Slav Defense. If you have more variations, ideas, tricks, traps or comments please do send them in, I look forward to reading them!
