Every chess-player needs a reliable defense 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 iniative. 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.
