In the beginning of April i have a school chess tournament, the players there are rated around 1200-1400. I have been preparing for 1. d4 with the Slav, against 1. e4 the Sicilian. I have to ask one question, there is a guy in a tournament that won it last time, i didnt play cause i was too busy with school itself, that almost always fianchettos one of his bishops sometimes even both of them in the first 5-6 moves. And he doesnt move pawns in the opening by 2 squares, usually just one, which makes his position look passive but hard to break while he is trying to break the center he gave you in the opening. I was wondering what black would play here, against these types of openings. Thanks in advance :)
In diagram one just develop your pieces with a space advantage, Bd6 Be6 0-0 maybe h6 to stop ng5 harassing the bishop, think maybe about Qd7 aiming for Bh3, trading off his kings bishop and making apparent the weakness of his light squares.For diagram 2 you already have a god advantage, I believe this setup is explained in lakdawalas slav move by move if you can get a copy.
