I've been looking for a good response to a d4 opening. All the repertoires I've studied are against e4? Any suggestions, thanks

    Need to know a bit more about you. What kind of positions do you enjoy playing? (What do you play against 1. e4?) Also, what is your level in chess? Any of the major openings (Queen's gambit, Slav, King's Indian, Grünfeld, Nimzo, Benoni,....) is good and played at the highest level. For a beginner player, the Queen's gambit/Slav kind of openings are probably easier to play (because moves largely follow general principles) than the Indian defenses. Dec 29, 2017 at 20:39
