I been looking around, and i never liked my cramped position against the queens gambit (i always declined it, i tried out many variations)
But then i realized why not play queens gambit accepted?
I tried 1 game and i loved my position, it was easy to control, and white couldnt gain much of an edge, so i wonder..
Is accept that bad?!
Heres my game
this opening was played by Viswanthan Anand, you can look of his games here:http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chess.pl?page=3&pid=12088&playercomp=black&eco=D20-D29&title=Viswanathan%20Anand%20playing%20the%20Queen's%20Gambit%20Accepted%20as%20Black&eresult=
Playing the QGA is very bad, didn't your mother teach you right from wrong? You should be ashamed.
I'll say 8...a6 then 9...b5 would be better because you could put your B on b7 and control the long diagonal.
This is a good example of QGA, it also shows a6 and b5 is important..
So far i would rather do QGA then QGD
White didn't really understand the goal of QG, when accepted (this is for me and based on study of the position) the response 4 e4 is unacceptable, it creates a "french dark bishop" (ie the dark bishop has been removed from the offense) either Nc3 or Bg5 would be better (as well as many other variations)
Queens gambit accepted was never considered bad, those who decline it just prefer to keep tension in the center, which personally i prefer too. when black accepts he's basically saying "fine you can have the center, but i will get natural and easy development". it was only considered "bad" to try and defend the pawn after accepting.
