The Queen's Gambit Declined + Queen's Gambit Declined Powerbook 2018

The Queens Gambit Declined, Orthodox Variation is an opening choice for Black which will never be refuted. It perhaps has an unjust reputation of being solid and passive, but this all-new ChessBase DVD will challenge that perception. Basing his Black repertoire on the Cambridge Springs variation, Andrew Martin takes you on a tour of classic games, showing how Black may conveniently sidestep the dangerous lines with Bf4, whilst retaining good chances and providing comprehensive coverage of the lines where White captures early on d5. This is a repertoire which will suit all levels of player. Video running time: 4 hours 23 min.

The whole universe of the Queen’s Gambit Declined!

Find all the Lines in a single variation tree: à la Lasker, Capablanca, Tartakower, Ragosin, as the Echange Variation or in the form of the Cambridge Springs Defence. The Powerbook Queen's Gambit Declined 2018 contains the knowledge from more than 40 000 high class master games as well as more than 623 000 engine games from our chess server (with the ECO codes D30-D42 and also D50-D69).

Probably the most significant development of recent years has been establishing that nowadays after 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Nf3 Be7 in addition to 5.Bg5 there is a second main move in  5.Bf4. And after 5.Bf4 0-0 6.e3 there is a trend towards 6...c5, with above all the name of  Hikaru Nakamura being attached to it. The American has especially after 7.dxc5 Bxc5 8.a3 Nc6 9.Qc2 Qa5

10.Rd1 given impetus to the renaissance of 10...Re8. In the position in the diagram the Powerbook offers branches with in each case numbers in the mid four figures. But although after 10.Rd1, 10.0-0-0 and 10.Nd2 White can demonstrate a slight plus in each case, Black’s position appears to be basically solid.
