An opening position reached by more or less standard moves which is the starting point for various alternative moves or serious investigation.

A good example of a famous tabiya is the position reached after following opening moves:

1. d4 ♘f6 2. c4 e6 3. ♘f3 d5 4. ♘c3

GM Jan Gustafsson recommends the move 4…dxc4 in his video series A repertoire against 1.d4. Part 2: The Vienna.
