The Queen’s Indian enjoys a deserved reputation as a reliable opening choice for Black against 1 d4. Black’s opening system involves an early queenside fianchetto with the hypermodern approach of controlling the centre with pieces, and the resulting positions are rich in dynamic and strategic possibilities for both sides. The Queen’s Indian is a popular choice at all levels of chess, and many of the World’s top players have employed it as part of their opening repertoires.
In this book, International Master and chess coach Lorin D’Costa invites you to join him in studying the Queen’s Indian. He highlights the typical plans and tactics for both sides, constructs a practical repertoire for Black and provides answers to all the key questions.
