Every chess-player needs a reliable defense against the Queen's Pawn Opening. The fundamental question is whether to go all-out for counter play, which may involve a great deal of risk, or to adopt a more solid, classical approach, and first carefully neutralize White's initiative.This book shows the potential of the latter approach. By defending the Queen's Gambit Declined, Black puts a firm road-block in the way of White's ambitions. If, as often happens when faced by sturdy defense, White becomes careless or impatient, Black is ready to break out and seize the initiative. Janjgava also shows how White's more hypermodern Catalan treatment can be met with the same strategy, and explains how, once Black has equalized, he can unbalance the position, and play for a win.Lasha Janjgava is a grandmaster from Georgia, and President of the Tbilisi Chess Federation. He has represented his country four times in chess Olympiads, and has built up a formidable reputation as a very hard player to beat. This is his first chess book.
