Default QGD Question

In the following game, in which I played White, my opponent played the unusual
2...b6, and I think I proceeded in an acceptable manner to win the game.
However, I can't help but think that there must be a more direct response to
2...b6. I cannot find 2...b6 in any openings book. Any suggestions? Thanks!

What the two of you played, here, was a sort of hybrid Baltic/Nimzoindian
Defence.

Concerning there being a "more direct response" to 2...b6 (which is somewhat
unusual) why bother, if black is adopting such a strategy? Your 3.Nc3 is book,
and best.

Here's a couple of relevant games for you to peruse:

[Event "Badalona op"]

After 1.d4 d5 2. c4 b6? 3. cxd is direct enough and white is clearly
better. 3...Bb7 4. e4 Is a pawn up without any compensation for black.

Are you so anxious to play theory? Why?
