How to play the opening for all rating levels, Part 3

Today, Queen's Gambit Declined is discussed.


What if I could show you a defense for Black that won me material in the opening the first 4 times I played it, would you want to know more? Well, just watch my video! I was rated high 1700's at the time and my opponents were about 1450-1800.


I am starting 3 thematic tournaments, with 8 players each. Sign up in this blog to be sent an invite. You must be a member of my video lessons group to enter. It's the best coaching group on and now the 7th largest of all groups.


Join here for all the fun!:

Specify which tournament you wish to enter:

NM aww-rats #004: D30: Queen's Gambit Delined: Tarrasch Defense

NM aww-rats #005: D40: Queen's Gambit Delined: Semi-Tarrasch Defense

NM aww-rats #006: D60: Queen's Gambit Delined: Orthodox Variation

When these tournaments start, new ones will be created, you will never be too late to join!
