BRCC: 1. d4 Games For White and Black
Compiled by foodfight

1.d4 Games For White and Black

I. 9 Example Games For White Based on Berliner's System. Note A: Berliner does not give much on the Slav (games 4-6) at the end of his book. What he does give, 4 cxd5 cxd5 5 f3, does not seem to work. I think 4. Nf3 come closest to meeting the system's objectives. Note B: Berliner admits he does not have a system move for the Nimzo-Indian. Think about 4. f3. It challenges Black's idea to hold up a pawn push to e4.

II. 5 Example Games for the Colle.

III. 4 Example Games For Black With The Queen's Gambit Tarrasch Defense. This defense eliminates most of the problems our players have with the QGD.

IV. 5 Example Games For Black Based on a Setup Recommended by Purdy.

V. 8 Example Games For Black With the Benko Gambit.

Benko Gambit hints for play after bxa6 Bxa6:

___A. If White offers to trade bishops at f1, then trade immediately to slow down White’s development.

___B. Place the rooks on a8 and b8. The queen does well on a5 or, if bishops are exchanged, a6.

___C. Work a knight into d3 and look for combinations at b2. e4 and a4 are also good for the knights.

___D. Use g4 as a springboard to help the knight travel to e5 and then d3. However, if White can drive the knight away with h3 and f4, you will lose time and White will gain it.

___E. If you play pawn from c5 to c4 to break up White’s pawns, make sure you control b4. If White can play b4 after Black’s ..c4, White will have connected passed pawns.

___F. A pawn break to ..e6 can help break up White’s center in the middle game.

___G. Black often has an endgame advantage even if queens are traded.

___H. In the endgame, consider ..f5 to break White’s pawns and marching the king to e5.

Benko Gambit hints for b6 Qxb6:

___I. ..Ne8 is often seen opening the diagonal for the bishop. The knight can travel to c7 and beyond from there.

___H. In both example games, Black fights to trade pieces off of c4, especially the knights.

Benko Gambit hints for cxb5 a6 e3:

___J. Do not take on b5 because it helps White develop the bishop.

___K. Take advantage of the fact that White does not have a pawn on e4 to help the d5 pawn. Develop the kingside, fianchetto the queen’s bishop and hit with ..e6 to break up the center.
