in this article I present a number of strategies for black involving early queenside play with the Queen against the white opening with 1.d4 and 2.Nf3. Some of these are almost completely unexplored and provide scope for original work.  That's pretty rare these days.

Although some of these openings might prove useful to black it is important to remember to keep the Queen's safe.  In the grand master game that is our main attraction the Queen gets trapped.

Please remember to click on the move list to display the variations otherwise you will not see them. Also, +0.00 means equal.
