|Aug-12-18|| ||LucB: Hi <FSR>.
This note is an über-belated "thank you!" from me to you for suggesting books for me on the QDG, over at <parmetd>'s forum, which are dated March 2015!... Yikes!
With all the drama that's been unfolding on the CG site recently, I've been reading up on the posts more attentively and I noticed that <parmetd> had, like so many of us, expressed his sorrow at Daniel Freeman's passing. Anyhow, I wander over to his discussion forum and, lo and behold, I noticed your book suggestions! So, again, thanks! and I'll check these out!
A related question: might there be a book that features the QGD for white called 'Winning with the white pieces'?
|Aug-20-18|| ||FSR: <LucB> Glad to help. Yes. I have used GM Lars Schandorff's "Playing 1.d4: The Queen's Gambit" (2d ed. 2012). It turned me on to 3.e4! against the QGA, which I've used twice in tournament games to good effect.|
There's also Alexei Kornev, "A Practical White Repertoire with 1.d4 and 2.c4, Vol. 1: The Complete Queen's Gambit" (2013); John Watson,
"A Strategic Chess Opening Repertoire for White: A complete plan of attack with 1 d4 and 2 c4" (2014); and Boris Avrukh, "1.d4: The Queen's Gambit (Grandmaster Repertoire)" (2016). I have all of these books, but haven't looked closely at any of them except Schandorff's. Watson's book basically covers 1.d4 and 2.c4 against virtually anything, not just the Queen's Gambit (e.g. King's Indian, Gruenfeld, Nimzo-Indian, etc.). Avrukh's book probably has the deepest analysis, but very little explanatory prose. If you just want a book on just the Queen's Gambit, I think Schandorff or possibly Kornev is your best bet. You can check out reviews on Amazon.com and elsewhere on the Internet to see what people have to say about all of these books. Good luck!
|Aug-21-18|| ||centralfiles: <FSR> what happened to your forum?|
|Aug-22-18|| ||LucB: <FSR>: great info, again, many thanks!|
|Aug-22-18|| ||morfishine: <centralfiles: <FSR> what happened to your forum?> I think <FSR> let his premium membership lapse pending the reorganization of <CG> due to the death of Daniel|
|Aug-22-18|| ||Marmot PFL: < FSR> Thx for suggestions on opening repertoire. I have books on all this (1 d4) but about 15 years out of date. Also need to update Sicilian knowledge (never ending task) or else play something else.|
|Aug-23-18|| ||FSR: Yes, <morfishine> is right about that. I want to see what's going to happen with the site before I renew.|
