Nice video! But I think 3.e4 can work quite well in the QGA.
I don't know if I agreed with you at 10:18, can't black transpose into a grunfeld at this point?
I have always had difficulty developing my light squared bishop in QGD. This system by Karpov looks alot more active.
FM Valeri Lov I have a question here you said that after rook e5 white has a decided advantage but what happens if Rxd4 Nxd4 Qxe5 followed by re8 etc...I feel that black would be at an advantage looking forward to your response...
At Harmdelaat... i would play Nc3, your only consitent move is Qa4, but i would just play Nf3, your only consistent move is e6, then just play Qc2, with Be2, castle short....if you decided to reteat the queen back to D8, i get a free move
Thanks for the pointers.
In the video you mention that it is never a good idea to play Nf6 when not excepting the gambit. So what should white do in the following situation?
1.d4 d5 2.c4 Nf6 3.cxd5 Qxd5
Obviously, white cannot play 4. e4 because of the attacking queen.
Very helpful video. I can't wait to try some of the moves and patterns you suggested. Not so uneasy about the Queen's Gambit now. Thanks.
Do you get paid to do these videos? if so, oyu should make more money by making one version is all for white and one is for black only... just an idea if you have nothing to do
12:15 in, why doesn't white take the center pawn with his pawn and then move the bishop only oncE?
I play d4 all the time and still learned something!Thanks

i'm glad i am a member
great explanation! thanks a lot!
this video is 5 min only :((((
Great video! I love the queen's gambit so this was very helpful.
Great Job! Thank you!
This is my favorite opening , thx FM lilov
This video was great! I've been waiting for you to do a 1.d4 opening as that's what I play, and although the video is aimed at beginners, I had to watch it as the QGA/QGD was the first opening to officially be a part of my repertoire for white and it never hurts to brush up on the basics...
But I even learned a line here I didn't know, so I think this video should be aimed at intermediates too as I've gained a lot from it! This is my favourite lecture by you so far - great job

This weekend FM Valeri Lilov transitions into the "Queen's Pawn Game" by reviewing the main lines of the Queen's Gambit from the beginner player's perspective. This opening, a much more positional approach to chess when compared to 1.e4 openings, is good for all players to know. The Queen's Pawn can be just as lethal as the King's Pawn!
Queen's Pawn Opening: 1...d5 (D00)

Valeri feels fortunate to have learned to play chess from his father when he was only three, immediately becoming seriously engaged. By the age of seven he was able to play blindfold chess in several games at the same time. At the age of eight, he achieved a record-breaking ELO of 1985, and subsequently became the European Individual School Chess Champion U10 in Moscow, Russia. He has won over 30 medals in national and international competitions, and in 2008 achieved his highest rating of 2443 and in 2013, the title of International master.
