The Queen's Gambit Declined Exchange Variation The Queen's Gambit Declined Exchange Variation

The Queen’s Gambit Declined Exchange Variation is one of the most important opening systems, having been played by most of the great players in history and from both sides of the board. The most outstanding specialists in this method of play include Garry Kasparov, Mikhail Botvinnik and Samuel Reshevsky. The Black side proponents include Anatoly Karpov, Boris Spassky and Paul Keres. It is truly an opening of champions!

Game of the Week 374

While coaching at the European Youth Championship in Bratislava, I came across several interesting and attractive games, but the game that I liked best was played in China between Cheparinov and Wang Hao. White build up the game very instructively and then created beautiful tactical fireworks.

The live show is free to watch, and available on-demand for ChessBase Premium accounts.
