  refutor: can white (in the slav) make Black play a QGD? 1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5? i guess the question is if 4. ...e6 does White has anything better than 4.Nf3?

3.Nc3 allows 3. ...e5?! but is that really anything to worry about? sneaky has tried to convince me it is, but i'm (still) not so sure. if 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Bg5 e6 i think WHite's best is 5.Nc3 going to Semi-Slav.
