Que up Fredthebear's Queen Pawn Game on Que
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

This is a smorgasbord of queen pawn games, generally with active piece play. It does not emphasize the queen's gambit declined or black counter gambits, but some are included. Most games herein tend to be slow queen pawn attacks that delay or omit c4, assorted gambits, odd lines and Indian defenses. Yep, I do like miniatures but there are some classic positional battles by the world champions and their contemporaries as well.

It is often advised to open with a center pawn, either 1.e4 or 1.d4, taking up space in the center and freeing a bishop. The most popular Black defenses respond by preventing one pawn leap or the other. If allowed, the classical White player will place two central pawns abreast on the fourth rank. Then Black will fire upon one of those central pawns in hopes of occupying the center later in the game.

A few center pawn duo games are included here for those who'd play 1.d4 2.e4 if Black allows... responding with a semi-open defense. Some 1.d4 2.c4 games are included in here for flavor, but it is not the emphasis because such a collection would be enormous. Quite a few Dutch defense games dropped in for a look. There's a little bit of everything.

There is always the matter of whether the ECO code is applied to the White opening or the Black defense. A game might transpose to a different opening than it was originally named. The Indian defenses that put the king's knight into play (Nf6) but delay central pawn action can really throw a monkey wrench into ECO codes. Occasionally, the wrong ECO is assigned generically by human ignorance of the book line.

Thank you ChessPraxis.
