In the unusual Queen¿s Gambit, grandmaster Chris Ward covers three offbeat but nevertheless important defences to this ancient opening. The Chigorin Defence (1 d4 d5 2 c4 Nc6) creates dynamic imbalance in the position. White often ends up with a big centre but Black¿s active pieces can create havoc. The Albin Counter Gambit (1 d4 d5 2 c4 e5) is a tricky tactical line which can be deadly against an unprepared White player. The final variation (1 d4 d5 2 c4 Bf5) is an interesting way to try to sovle immediately the age old problem of how to develop the queen¿s bishop in the Queen¿s Gambit Declined.* Provides detailed coverage of unusual but dangerous counters to the Queen¿s Gambit* Full coverage of all recent developments
Grandmaster Chris Ward is a leading member of the younger generation of English grandmasters. He is a former British champion and a highly successful chess coach. His previous books for Everyman Chess include Improve Your Opening Play, The Genius of Paul Morphy and It¿s Your Move.
