A technical question : how can you get  a splendid image of a chess game ?... I don't know how to do it...

It is easier if you can find the game at chessgames. Click on the PGN view option. Copy the PGN thing. Go to the thread where you want to post the game. Click on the chessboard symbol at the far left above the box where you enter comments. Click on the Load PGN option. Paste the PGN thing into the box. Click on the Load option. Click on the Insert option. (I think it is good manners to paste a link indicating where the PGN thing was found.) Click on the Post option.

u are telling semi slav is bad only because some analysis (in a bad way) with an engine and some thoughts by a 1900 player?

Come on guys, a bit of humility maybe?

I've never played it as black, but top players used to play it since decades.

But sure if u make the moves u want to play for black (because u don't know theory or didn't search a bit) and to crush them, continue this way.

Did you miss checking the move order or are you sure your grandpa's old book from 20th Century is still good?

 

Come on, I read ECO 500 lines in my teenage. QGA D20 to D29 lines will highlight. 

 

1. d4 d5 2.dxc4 or similar lines,

 

 

 

 

The main idea of QGA lines mainly encourage

 

e6 or  a6 or Nf6 very early. 

 

The game OP mentioned is wrong.

Black did QGA after doing 2......c6 and then 3.....dxc4. 3.... dxc4 is played 1000+ games vs 48000 Nf6 or 5000 e6.

1000+ must be sidelines, not mainline.

 

 

 

 

At move 3.. Black should do either 3.... e6 or 3.... Nf6.

I Will by myself Not play QGA because you have the slav or QGD Or Queens indian Defense or nimzo Indian defense if you will still play the QGA then play it without trying to hold on C4 the pawn you win if you play d4 d5 c4 d*c and not try b5 to hold on the pawn yes maybe you have a6 b5 the alekine line but try rather d4 Nf6 c4 D5 Nf3 and then takes the pawn on c4 and e3 white playing e3 and then try c5 that’s is the best line also called classic defense QGA classic defense that’s is my best advice

I agree with you

Thanks for all the answers & examples. I have improved my knowledge about the queens gambit A LOT since i started this thread!

Here i have checked a few lines that seem to work. If white plays Bf4 or Bg5 early then accepting the gambit seems to work best.

I agree that playing QGA can surprise many opponents, it is rarely played compared to QGD.
