Opening Instructor Part 1

Pin It
Catalan  ( Part 1 )


1 d4 d5  2 c4  e6   3 Nf3  Nf6   4  g3 


( Black is faced with a choice : He can take the c4 pawn which leads to the open variation or else  he can continue his development i.e. choose the closed variation, when after reinforcing his d5 pawn  he plans counter attack on the enemy centre. ) 


dxc4 


( In taking the pawn , Black as though lengthens the diagonal of the Bishop at g2, allowing it to strike at the Queen side, What when is the point of 4.... dxc4? It is to exploit the time spent by the opponent on regaining the pawn to develop the pieces and create counter play against d4.)
