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.=> More products: Queen's Gambit
