Alexey Bezgodov provides a complete chess opening repertoire for
Black against 1.d4. After replying with 1…d5, the former Russian Chess
Champion advises you to take up the Double Queen's Gambit and play 2…c5!
against both 2. c4 and 2. Nf3.
In The Double Queen's Gambit Black's
attitude is as active and ambitious as that of White in the Queen's
Gambit. This ambition may seem premature at first sight, but many strong
grandmasters have already successfully played this system.
thoroughly investigating and analysing this opening, Bezgodov has
gained a lot of experience in practical grandmaster play. The system not
only turned out to be playable but also brought him success, and not
just because of its surprise value.
Bezgodov's conclusion is that
there is no clear and compelling way for White to reach an advantage.
The fresh ideas and the clear explanations in The Double Queen's Gambit
may change your view on modern chess opening theory. Bezgodov provides
dozens of exercises to test your understanding of his system.
