There is an interesting discussion at the link (hope it is OK to post this link - if not, no problem with removing it). Basically, 3.c5 is not disastrous but it isn't great. Black gets a good game with 3 ... e5 for example.

I am somewhat new. I have played about 900 games in 18 months here. I play Queen's Gambit a lot. Lately I have starting advancing the c pawn when the gambit is declined. As in
1. d4 d5
2. c4 c6
3. c5

I have a feeling that this is not the wisest move or I would see it mentioned more in the pages I study about this opening. But I have had some recent success with it. Am I missing something? Does this weaken my overall position in ways I just can not yet foresee? Thanks in advance for any replies to this.
