"Tuna to play the Queen's Gambit with blacks is that his opponent will have to play better than you if you want to win"
The Queen´s Gambit is an opening of great historical importance. The play 2.c4, that defines its name, is the fundamental answer after 1.d4 d5. From the first movement, the black obtains a firm support in center, something very difficult to mine for the target. On the other hand, sometimes the black one bases its strategy on that control of the center. The solidity of the Queen´s Gambit never has been put at issue, and between its defenders we found Great Masters of the high level: Kasparov, Kramnik, Karpov and Short, like also other teachers of the past.
This book is a new incorporation to the series Learns Openings, in him McDonald returns to the origins of the Queen´s Gambit, introducing key movements, ideas, and essentially insisting on the reasonings that there are behind each play. In this guide the reader will count on the aid of abundant notes, warnings and advice who altogether will illustrate the most important characteristics of the Queen´s Gambit and the openings generally. This book is a perfect tool for players who wish to begin in this opening.
