    Queen's Gambit Accepted

    Product Code: CB0090CD

    This opening has long been the most direct answer to the sequence 1.d4 d5 2.c4 Black accepts the challenge by simply taking 2..dxc4. Black is temporarily giving up the center,then will restore it by soon playing ..c5(or ..e5 in some cases). White's only real satisfaction is the possession of the initial tempo with a slight advantage. But even so, Black can fight for a dynamic equality by rapid piece development and -quite often- with a Queenside pawn advance after ..a6 and ..b5(this normally takes place after a preliminary ..c5). Black's position is both solid and resilient. In many instances Black will have good winning chances(in dynamic equilibrium with White's) in the resulting positionally and tactically complex positions. This is why the QGA has been played by a host of the world's top players over the years. Names such as Smyslov, Flohr, Keres, Petrosian, Fine, Reshevsky and modern GM's such as Ivanchuk, Seirawan, Dlugy, Ehlvest, Kramnik, and Anand give absolute testimony to its soundness. This book, covering all variations, is written from both the Black and White side, giving best play for each.
