You want to surprise your opponent in unbeaten tracks?

Giovanni Falchetta has written a book on the variation starting with 1. d4 d5 2. c4 Bf5.
T his variation of the QGD is an audacious attempt to resolve the endemic problem of the Queen Bishop, the problem child in most queen-side openings. Falchetta's book is probably the best single volume study of this variation.

The defence examined in this work would seem to contradict some of the conceptual foundations which have always upheld the positions which spring from the sequence 1 d4 d5 2 c4. Primarily the necessity of sustaining the "d5" pawn with the thrust in "e6" or "c6", secondly (he accelerated development of the Queen's Bishop with the second move.
This most certainly represents a provocative move given that Black utilizes it in order to try to radically resolve one of the "historical" problems of the Queen's Gambit: the development of the white-square Bishop.
This difficulty is not so much linked to the impossibility of getting the Bishop into an opportune square as to the the fact that its precocious exit weakens the Queen's side and, indirectly, the centre. Indeed the move 2...Bf5 deprives Black of useful momentum which would have served to adequately sustain the pawn in "d5", against which White has already begun his attack with the thrust in "c4".
