 Ok I am still new to chess but and I have been wondering about this opening myself. 

But I dont see how white gets its pawn back, can someone explain it? Can't black protect its pawn with b5?

Sure, the problem is, after 1.d4 d5 2.c4 dxc4 3.e3 b5 4.a4, how does Black then protect the b5 pawn? Here are some sample lines... be sure to click the "Move List" button.
