  Mating Net: Doeas anybody have any experience/comments on the early Queen exchange? I was amazed to discover that the database has an overwhelming advantage for Black after the early Queen exchange. It is quite a paradox because, at first glance, such an exchange would seem to favor White. It looks like Black's King is very well placed on c7 and that castling for White may not be such a good move.
Feb-28-05  refutor: with the queens off the king is not in so much danger in the center, actually it is better than its castled counterpart because it will be able to take part in the endgame easier.

  tpstar: <Mating Net> Good observation how the early Queen exchange in these Old Indian variants truly helps Black. I also suspect it gets both players out of book early, letting the better strategist prevail. Look here = Aganalian vs Petrosian, 1945

  Mating Net: Thanks for the comments fellas. <refutor> <tpstar> As you guys pointed out, without the Queens, the King can handle being in the center, and yes, the early exchange definitely gets people out of book and into an early endgame. In the Petrosian game, Black intentionally loses an exchange to advance his pawns and win the game. Awesome stuff.

The early Queen exchange is definitely something I'm going to shoot for when I have the Black pieces. 1 d4 d6 2 c4 e5 and White is going to de mighty tempted to exchange pawns and Queens, just like we want him to.

Mar-01-05  delterp: I like the endgame. Move 43, material is equal. But black wins 13 moves later.
Mar-18-18  choumicha: This game is used in "An Explosive Chess Opening Repertoire for Black" (2002) by Yrjola and Tella to explain this endgame variation.

They start with (chapter 10, p.66): "The endgame arising after 1.d4 d6 2.c4 e5 3.dxe5 dxe5 4.Qxd8 Kxd8 FAVOURS BLACK. The fact that White has played c4 turns out to represent a significant weakness, as d4 and some dark squares on the queenside are controlled by Black. Black gets a good endgame with plans like ...c6 and Kc7, ...f6 and ...Nh6-f7, ...a5, ...Nd7-c5 and ...Be6. The black king is useful in the centre, as long as White doesn't have too many open lines against it."
