Great game a lot of my best wins have come via the QID it's an amazing opening/defence!!
Nice one, I solved it.
i solved it!
playing the two indian openings is real opening, being one and there should be more of a share tactic, when the king and queen meet the lead on should not be silent and alot of if or not, anyway the tactic inthe game would be named the king type game.. also, after listening to finegold, and the setting of computer chess and midnight movies, i would say the st. louis openong would be use instead of syle and alot of possion chess like the norway play from poland, though good not elaberrate, thinking to myself, chess and checkers is similar, and the lovely chess pieces viewing the game, can not be viewed or demand a rosey and have wonderful game after forgetting the spirit of st louy.. the game should stay up north near northern canada next to montreal and after the rook became because chess is used as avechile of freee speech and look at beautifil video of my stle and returning the insulting of proclaiming my move is but a vodka and a wheel move which has been discussed inthe article june 8, 2001 of chess literure for kids in focus. i would leave car and bill fold at home the knight problable a dangerous piece over the time complexing situations used on sundays. today at the time of lunch, doom time oc checkmate,6-16-2013, worth a million of words... theTHE TURKEYLUCK and alot of luck and scorn would be felt using the fucking bishop under stand fucking chineese you are a rook aduience under the shell of night attack... pp micro dot willow the champ ...........?????????
Nice lesson, inspires me to study chess tactics.
Thanks for the QID instruction!
Very nice demonstration. I like that you were clear and had a good pace that made it easy to follow.
I think I will add this opening to my repertoire. Thank you Grandmaster Timur Gareev.
Nice one, thanks .

by GM Timur Gareev
GM Gareev explains his blistering round one win in his first U.S. Championship, replete with beautiful tactics and sacrifices. Along the way you'll learn the ins and outs of the Queen's Indian Defense, one of his favorites as of late. After winning a pawn, Gareev misses a stunning tactic that would have forced mate before move 20. He missed it in the game, but still went on to win - can you find it?
