98_E01-E09_ _ _ C A T A L A N (Catalan)
Compiled by whiteshark
--*--

The Catalan is a chess opening where White adopts a combination of the Queen's Gambit and Réti Opening: White plays d4 and c4 and fianchettoes the white bishop on g2. A common opening sequence is 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.g3, although the opening can arise from a large number of move orders (see transposition). ECO codes E01–E09 are for lines with 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.g3 d5 4.Bg2, and others are part of E00.

Black has two main approaches to choose between: in the Open Catalan he plays ...dxc4 and can either try to hold on to the pawn with ...b5 or give it back for extra time to free his game. In the Closed Catalan, Black does not capture on c4; his game can be somewhat cramped for a while, but is quite solid.

The <Open Catalan, Classical line> begins <1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.g3 d5 4.Bg2 dxc4 5.Nf3>.

Opening Explorer (2,489 games) White trades the pawn for a lead in development. Without the d5 pawn, White's kingside bishop hinders Black's queenside development. The Open Catalan line here has been a favorite of Anatoly Karpov and Efim Geller as Black and Oleg Romanishin with the white pieces. Usually, white will recover the pawn with Qc2 and a4, Ne5, or Qa4. In order to hold the pawn, Black will have to seriously weaken the queenside with ...a6 and ...b5. The ECO code is E05.

Wikipedia article: Catalan Opening

_ _ _ _ _ _

The Catalan opening is an opening sequence which generally begins with <1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.g3 d5 4.Bg2 dc4 5.Nf3!>. This opening is a mixture of Queens Gambit and Reti opening. This opening wasn't popular among the top players in many years. But gradually this opening theory gets healthy and new ideas are discovered.With its use by <Vladimir Kramnik>, Catalan has gained sufficient attention.Also <Levon Aronian ,Boris Gelfand> are the renowned practitioner of this line. There is a tendency for games with the Catalan Opening to produce endgames in which white can gain slight advantage. <GM Ulf Andersson> was one of the artist who employed this variation and gained great result. https://www.chess.com/blog/ReasatNa...
