Understanding Before Moving 2: Queen’s Gambit Structures

Understanding Before Moving 2: Queen’s Gambit Structures

by Herman Grooten

Club players love to study openings as so much material is available. However, it has often been shown that results do not match the amount of study invested, as in practice it is much harder to navigate your way around an opening when the opponent deviates from theory. This is why Herman treats the study of openings in a completely different way. He focuses on increasing insight. 

In this book he discuses the backgrounds of openings, provides guidelines and explains in an instructive and accessible way the basic principles of a position. This book, the second in its series, provides an overview of the positions and corresponding plans arising from the Queen’s Gambit. The method is based on the column ‘Understanding Before Moving’ in the chess magazine of the Royal Dutch Chess Federation; readers who follow it may hope to significantly increase their skill.
