Beat White Playing the Chebanenko Slav Defense (10+ hours)!
Looking for a solid and flexible opening for Black against 1.d4? GM Adrien Demuth reveals his favorite weapon against 1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nf3, the Chebanenko Slav Defense (3…a6!). You will get 10 hours with all the theory, in-game analysis, plans, and pawn structures. Nothing is being held back.
You’re getting the complete GM-level repertoire that is battle-tested against both IM and GM level opponents, as well as under 2200 players.
You can spend memorizing the mainline theory, or you can do exactly what GM Adrien Demuth did…
Adrien spent a fraction of the preparation time building a complete repertoire for Black based on the Chebanenko Slav Defense.
Although many club players would consider 4…a6 a ‘strange move’, Grandmasters know it’s totally solid and leads to two powerful pawn breaks: …b5 and …e5.
In fact, the Chebanenko Slav is so solid, that some GMs gave up playing 1.d4 altogether because they couldn’t claim any advantage with White in this line!!
