The Slav Defence (1 d4 d5 2 c4 c6) has been one of Black's most reliable defences to the queen's pawn since its adoption by World Champions Alekhine and Euwe in the 1930s.

Sadler ist der "Mann der Stunde" im englischen Schach, und seitdem er mit Schwarz 100% bei der Olympiade in Erewan erreichte, sollte man sich seine Tips zur Eröffnungswahl zu Herzen nehmen. Hier (nach 1. d4 d5 2. c4 c6) behandelt er sowohl die traditionelle Variante nach 3. Sf3 Sf6 4. Sc3 dxc4, als auch den Zug 4. ...a6!?, eine Idee, die in den Neunziger Jahren sehr beliebt wurde. Eine Eigenschaft, die einen sehr starken Spieler wie Sadler auszeichnet, ist die Fähigkeit, sich auf die wirklich kritischen Stellungen zu konzentrieren, und so sind auch die Kommentare zu den 88 Partien genau auf die kritischen Momente der Eröffnung ausgerichtet. Die Zugreihenfolge wird sehr präzise diskutiert, was man immer gerne sieht. Sadler erklärt: "Der Gegner spielt nie fair! Man setzt sich selbstbewußt ans Brett... und was passiert? Er spielt in der Eröffnung eine etwas andere Zugfolge, und man ist ziemlich verärgert, eine andere Stellung auf dem Brett zu haben, als die, die man eigentlich haben wollte. Ein hervorragendes Werk.
