In Part 2 of his series on how to meet 1.d4, Grandmaster Jan Gustafsson tackles the biggest “tabiya” there is, the position after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 d5 4.Nc3. Jan recommends the underrated move 4…dxc4, the so-called Vienna, and provides a repertoire for Black against all of White’s options.
This course provides the viewer with a complete repertoire against 1.d4. This series can also be watched as a standalone guide for those interested in learning the Vienna.
