The Catalan Opening is a very sharp sophisticated positional opening that gives white a Reverse Grunfeld Position with an extra tempo. The Catalan can be considered to be White adopting a combination of the Queen's Gambit and Rti Opening: White plays d4 and c4 and fianchettoes the white bishop on g2. A common opening sequence is 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.g3 d5 4.Bg2, though the opening can arise from a large number of move orders.
The Catalan is played on the highest level because of the imitative white gets out of the opening. If you like playing an opening that gives active play and great winning chances, The Catalan Opening is for you.
