Queens Gambit Breakdown for Black
Compiled by builttospill
--*--

I recommend to every chess player to learn one opening each for 1. d4 and 1. e4. I find the semi slav to be a fun answer to 1. d4. It's a sure fire way to find yourself in a sharp game that will reward the better tactical player. Are you looking for an opening that will give you a decisive game? This is it!

Look at some of the names i've featured in this list. Kramnik, Anand, Kasparov, Morozevich, Topalov -- the list goes on! You'd do well to familiarize with some of these variations, including when white brings out the bishop early to pin the knight on f6 as well as the slightly more played Bd3 which leads to the Meran variation.

What's nice about studying an opening with a color in mind is that you find that before you know it, you know the ideas of the other side as well.

I'll try to categorize these games at some point into themes of some sort, but i'll have to aquaint myself with this opening better before I can do that.
