♕ MORE: www.onlinechesslessons.net facebook.com | twitter.com I responded to the Queen’s Gambit with the Slav Defense, and my opponent played the Exchange Variation with 4. cxd5. Play continued normally until 7. a3 and 8. b4 – which I don’t think is very good for white because this is taking a lot of time to move these pawns while black is busy developing his pieces and trying to create tactics against white’s lack of development. I think I missed a nice piece sacrifice with 11. …Nxb4 instead of 11. …a5 – creating a very strong attack against white’s king and fully exploiting black’s lead in development. However after the game continuation 11. …a5 – I think black has every reason to fight for the advantage as white’s king will definitely be stuck in the center for another couple of moves. With 15. bxc5 white dropped his bishop on b5, however the alternative 15. dxc5 would allow black a pawn majority in the center and chances to play …f6 and …e5 in the near future.
