Playing 1.d4 - The Queen's Gambit

Product Code: B0067QT

Book Description

Playing 1.d4 – The Queen's Gambit is part of an ambitious two-volume repertoire for White with 1.d4.

The core of the repertoire from the first edition, published in 2009, is retained, but a multitude of details have been updated and improved within the lines.

This is both the same repertoire but at the same time so much more, as when a boy grows up and becomes a man – many features are unchanged, but his strength and knowledge are expanded immensely.

This book offers White an easy to remember aggressive repertoire, based on occupying the centre and then expanding. Schandorff presents the ideas and information in an accessible and entertaining style.

The repertoire will be completed by 'Playing 1.d4 – The Indian Defences'.

  • The Queen's Gambit and Catalan for Black
    Every chess-player needs a reliable defence against the Queen's Pawn Opening. The fundamental question is whether to go all-out for counterplay, which may involve a great deal of risk, or to adopt a more solid, classical approach, and first carefully neutralize White's initiative. This book shows the potential of the latter approach. By defending the Queen's Gambit Declined, Black puts a firm road-block in the way of White's ambitions.

  • FRITZ TRAINER - A World Champions Repertoire Against The Queen's Gambit Declined - Robert Ris
    Back in the 1950s, it was Botvinnik who popularised the Exchange Variation of the Queen’s Gambit Declined. The setup, which involves putting the knight on e2 in combination with castling kingside, was revolutionary at that time. Until then, White had either placed his knight on f3 with the idea of s tarting a minority attack on the queenside, or on e2, where it was normally associated with the intention of castling queenside and preparing a pawn storm against the Black King. K asparov, Botvinnik’s pupil, would soon follow in his mentor’s footsteps, bringing yet further refinements to this flexible system.
