To those who is knowlegeable on this opening, why wouldn't the opposition take the pawn that moved to e4. Is it because white will give control of the center to black?
a 270 should not know what the slav is .... ratings, especially of scholastic players, are DEFLATED bigtime in the USCF.
This is the game of a 270:
I am currently playing in the US junior chess congress under 8 section for the club named HCA and in my first game against someone and his rating was about 270 and my rating was 1097 and I played the Queen's gambit declined with him playing the slav and I won the game with an extra Queen, some pawns, and about 2 minor pieces.
Hey blowerd, as MikeDoyle shared below, it sounds like you're playing a Ragozin system. It can be complex and dynamic, so yeah it's good. The Queen's Gambit Players group covers it and other lines in vote chess regularly.
The Ragozin Variation (ECO code D37-D39) occurs after 4.Nf3 Bb4. An important line in this variation is the Vienna variation where the game continues: 5.Bg5 dxc4 6.e4. White pawns or pieces to occupy the central squares in exchange for long-term pawn structure weaknesses. An instance of Vienna variation played at the highest level was Fine vs Euwe, AVRO 1938.
I have often played this as black. It often ends up with me playing Bb4 to pin whites knight after they have developed it. Is this a good move?
Just to tell you North Sea if you play the Queen's gambit Decline for black and you play c6 it's also called the slob.
this is my favorite opening for no matter how strong the opponent's counter attack it will last until you win
Review my games.. i play black..
My favourite opening, The Queens Gambit. I consider myself an expert on its theory. I rarely play anything other than it regardless of what black plays.
this is a solid opening...
hard to break through
i like anderssen opening,and polish. ihate queens gambit,b'coz its so familiar.plenty counter attack.
I prefer the Slav, but there's nothing wrong with this either.
Actually Wikipedia is an astonishing resource on chess.
I am actually practising a line of defence on the Queen's Gambit Declined now. So I will let you know how I get on. Come on black!
Thanks Mr Doyle for explaining Queen's Gambit (+ Declined). It is hard to understand variations without understanding the original. Though I thought it all came out of your head at first.
