Slav Defense

The Slav Defense is one of the most popular openings with GM's. This is for two reasons. The first is that it is one of the most solid lines to play against the Queens Gambit and with the Queens Gambit being a regular opening at high level play, many top players have become fans of this opening...

[Result 0-1]


1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 d5 3.c4 c6 4.Nc3 Bf5 {4...Bg4 would be a
serious error. 5. Ne5 Bf5 6. cxd5 cxd5 7. e4 refutes it
outright. -- Marovic} 5.Qb3 Qb6 6.Qxb6 axb6 7.cxd5 Nxd5 8.Nxd5
cxd5 9.e3 Nc6 10.Bd2 Bd7 {A deep and beautiful move. Black
intends to exploit his command of the a-file, and he conceives
a deep strategic plan on the queenside involving the advance
of his doubled pawn. In order to carry this out, he needs his
bishop on d7. -- Marovic} 11.Be2 {This is bad. Capablanca
suggested 11. Bb5, but 11. Bd3 followed by Ke2 is also
good. -- Marovic} e6 12.O-O Bd6 13.Rfc1 Ke7 14.Bc3 Rhc8 15.a3
