International Master Sopiko Guramishvili introduces “The Triangle” – Black puts pawns on c6, d5 and e6 against 1.d4 – which she describes as “tricky, very easy to understand and full of chances for counterplay”.
The goal is to give you the tools and confidence you need to play one of Black’s most trustworthy responses to 1.d4, whatever White throws at you!
