Originally posted by GolubI generally play 3.Nc3, you could try that....although I don't really play 1.d4 too much, so I don't have the lines. Also possible is 3.e3 b5?? 4.a4 c6 5.axb5 cxb5 6.Qf3 when white picks up the piece.
Is there any way for white to regain the pawn after: 1. d4 d5 2. c4 dxc4 3. Nf3 b5 ?

I encounter those moves as white, but never really invested any time in learning theory in this line. It usually worked out well anyway, but it would be nice to know if there are any concrete var ...[text shortened]... uently.
(Any lines where black tries to keep it later on, or with pieces also interests me..)
