Play the Queen’s Gambit Accepted

thumb22d4 players love to put us into a positional bind. The closed positions often lead to slow maneuvers, with White always one step ahead. But what if there was a way to shake your opponent from their comfort zone and force them to play an open position? Well, there is! Play the Queen’s Gambit Accepted!

Accepting the Gambit with 1.d4 d5 2.c4 dxc4! gives you a more open game, with easy development, and a clear route to equality. White, as usual, has many options to answer 2…dxc4, but all of them have their drawbacks.

That’s the reason why the next live training with IM Valeri Lilov will have a major impact on your play.
