The Queen’s Gambit Declined (QGD), is a highly popular opening for players of all levels, from absolute beginners to World Champions. Known for giving a solid position, many play this opening from the Black side, however, things aren’t as simple as they seem to be. With an emphasis on 4.Bg5, which was the old mainline played at the highest levels since the World Championship match of the 1920s, we uncover a lot of new ideas.

This repertoire provides White with ideas against any of the Black options after the moves 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3. These ideas are both objectively good and highly practical, so as to be easily remembered. By studying this course, you will be able to get a better position against sidelines, and even against the mainlines; confidently achieving a pleasant position, which Black must defend precisely. Study the course and start picking up points against the solid QGD!
