So how DO you play against 1.d4?
The Quen´s gambit declined is a very solid and "easy" way of facing 1.d4. You put a pawn of d5 and defend it developing your pieces. A typical line would be:
the kingsindian or Dutch stonewall or the slav tschebanenko.
1. ...e6 (and secretly hope it transposes to a French)
The Slav or Dutch. Sometimes if I'm feeling insane the Englund gambit. Thinking of trying the Albin, too
...with great alacrity.
benko/blumenfeld and sometimes a nimzo heading for the b5 gambit lines.
