Queen's Gambit

The occupation of the centre with 1.d4 is, with 1.e4, one of the most popular ways to start a game. If Black meets the move of the queen’s pawn with the symmetrical 1...d5, we have after 2.c4 the Queen’s Gambit. In most cases, Black will now support the pawn on d5, which gives him a share of the centre: either with 2...e6 – the Queen’s Gambit Declined – or 2...c6 – the Slav Defence. A third and very different possibility is 2...dxc4, the Queen’s Gambit Accepted.

1 d4 d5 2 c4 c6 3 Nf3 dxc4. Without a White Knight on c3 the positon becomes radically different to the earlier line, but the idea of disruption is still the key to understanding Black's play.

When facing gambits the most important thing is not to panic, a feeling usually induced by lack of knowledge. Keep calm, learn the antidotes and face the aggression with renewed confidence.
