Grandmaster Jan Gustafsson (2635) gives you an overview of the real-life problems a 1.d4 player faces. By looking at every major opening from White's perspective Jan teaches us what our options are and how to alter the move order to make life as unpleasant as possible for our opponents. While this is a 1.d4 series, 1.c4 and 1.Nf3 are also taken into account, with their pros and cons covered against all the major lines.
Learn how to prepare! Instead of sticking to one line every game learn what your options are and become a more flexible and better white player.
Jan welcomes us to his series on how to become a better 1.d4 player.
