Product Code: B0115EU

Alternative Views:


The QGA is a positionally sound and reliable opening, played by world champions Kasparov, Karpov, Anand and Topalov. The authors consider the Classical System with 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.e3 e6, but they in fact prefer alternative, sharper approaches. Against 3.e4 they recommend 3...Nc6 4.Nf3 Nf6!?, against 3.e3 they choose 3...e5! and against 3.Nf3 their weapon of choice is 3...Nf6 4.e3 Bg4!? Other choices and drawish alternatives are given. They pay special attention on the ideas behind the moves, leaving the detailed coverage for their "Step by Step" sections. You'll also find advice against Queen's pawn openings where White refrains from 2.c4.
