Interesting. I'll have to admit though, I'm gonna have to rewatch this video in slow motion. A lot of valuable information. Keep it up!

Excellent as always, Josh! You've got a real knack for explaining this stuff.

This is a really useful video. I play Alekhine's as black and you would not believe how many times it transposes into a BDG. Thanks for the preparation!

Hey Josh- great stuff as always. I'm not a BDG fanatic but I do play it from time to time. I haven't played against the Hubsch before but I noticed in the material I have that white has played Qa4+ at the point where you have him playing 8.f3 in the last section. Here is a game in the line:

[Event "C3.1997.0.00056"]
[Site "IECG email"]
[Date "1997.12.08"]
[Round "0"]
[White "Cain,Matthew"]
[Black "Chong,David"]
[Result "1-0"]
[Eco "D00"]
1.d4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5 3.e4 Nxe4 4.Nxe4 dxe4 5.Bc4 Nc6 6.c3 e5 7.d5 Ne7 8.Qa4+ Bd7
9.Qb3 Nf5 10.Qxb7 Bc5 11.Bb5 0-0 12.Bxd7 Qxd7 13.Qb3 Rfd8 14.c4 c6 15.Ne2 cxd5 16.cxd5 Rab8
17.Qd1 e3 18.f3 Ne7 19.Nc3 Bd4 20.Qd3 Nxd5 21.Nxd5 Qxd5 22.Bxe3 Rxb2 23.Bxd4 Rxg2 24.Kf1
1-0

I'm wondering about your response. In the database there are a few wins (and losses) with white in this line. Thanks again for the instructive videos.

How do you deal with 1.d4 Nf6 2.f3? I find that this is a more common way for White to go into the main BDG lines.

Great video!

This might be something I can use.
I dont play either 1..d5 or 1...Nf6 as a respone to 1.d4, so there no problem there.
But I play the Alekhine defence from time to time.
And it has happened that 1.e4 players use the following transposition on me (well, just once):

1.e4 Nf6
2.Nc3 d5
3. e4 ...

and there it is.

It will be nice to see your response to kamus question.

Thanks/Jakob

Many experienced BDG players choose to avoid the Hubsch by the move order: 1.d4 Nf6 2.f3 d5 3.e4 dxe4 4.Nc3.

In view of this I think you should do a companion video dealing with a defence to the BDG proper.

Regards,

Toppy :)

Thanks a lot Josh!

I had much the same reaction with this video as I had on the announcement of "Big changes coming to the site in the next few weeks": Oh NOOO!

I am your typical BDG player as you have sharply outlined in your video. So a lot of my clubmembers actually do walk into what I want..... or at least into something they do not know. For me this is the main purpose of playing this opening. I hope not too many of my clubmembers will check out your video..... Otherwise I have to get a new opening repertoire for White!

On the bright side: your video showed me some background unequalled in the books I have on the BDG. Shows again the power of the video concept of Chessvideo!

Well Josh hasn't responded to my question yet. Of course, the reality is that he now realizes that there is no bust to the BDG and he can't bring himself to face that horrible fact! :cyclopsani:

Or maybe he's just busy :wink:
