    Queen's Gambit Accepted - Top-Level Repertoire for Black


    We are happy to announce another fascinating project by GM Ivan Cheparinov - Queen's Gambit Accepted - Top-Level Repertoire for Black.

    In this course, Cheparinov builds complete repertoire for Black based on 1.d4 d5 2.c4 dxc4


    This is the starting position of the Queen's Gambit Accepted. This opening is considered to be one of Black's most solid choices against 1.d4. It's extremely difficult for White to create even practical problems. 

    Cheparinov provides very detailed top-level analysis rich of new ideas. After studying the material, you can play Queen's Gambit Accepted against every opponent.

    The course consists of 20 theoretical chapters, 20 interactive test positions, a Memory Booster, and a Video Version (5h and 33min).

    White has three main moves in response to 2...dxc4: 3.Nf3, 3.e3, and 3.e4. It goes without saying that Cheparinov examines all the sidelines as well. At the same time, the move 3.e3 does not have an independent value since it transposes to our lines arising after 3.Nf3.

    The first important tabiya of this course arises after the moves 1.d4 d5 2.c4 dxc4 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.e3 e6 5.Bxc4 c5


    This is the most popular position in Queen's Gambit Accepted. Black is ready to proceed with either ...a7-a6 followed by ...b7-b5, or with ... Nc6. In this course, Cheparinov favours the setups based on the move ...Nc6.

    At this point, White's main move is 6.0-0. Of course, all the alternatives are dealt with as well.

    After 6.0-0, we continue with 6...Nc6.


    This move is definitely not worse than the most popular 6...a6. Black's idea is to put maximum pressure on the centre. Usually, his future plan is based on ...a7-a6 followed by ...b7-b5. Every one who wants to play Queen's Gambit Accepted should be very familiar with the symmetrical structure arising after dxc5. Therefore, Cheparinov examines this capture in various move orders.

    After the moves 7.Nc3 a6, we reach the modern tabiya of Queen's Gambit Accepted.


    White has tried many moves here. As you will see in the analysis, the most popular move, 8.a4, is quite harmless. In all the arising structures, the weakness of the b4-square tends to be quite significant.

    According to Cheparinov, the most challenging option is 8.d5. In this case, Black should react with 8...Nxd5 9.Nxd5 b5!. Detailed analysis proves that Black has an excellent counterplay in the arising complex positions.

    The other main way of fighting against Queen's Gambit Accepted is 3.e4.


    This is considered to be the most ambitious approach. White is relying on his strong pawn centre. On the downside, in many cases, the pawn centre tends to be overextended. 

    Against this line, Cheparinov goes for the principled 3...e5

    A very important Queen's Gambit Accepted crossroads arises after 4.Nf3 exd4 5.Bxc4 Nc6


    In order to prove compensation for the pawn, White should play very energetically. Completing the development with 6.0-0 is the main option. All the alternatives on move 6 are examined as well.

    After 6.0-0, Cheparinov suggests 6...Be6.


    At this point, Cheparinov examines all White's possibilities on move 7. The absolute main line goes 7.Bxe6 fxe6 8.Qb3 Qd7 9.Qxb7 Rb8 10.Qa6 Nf6


    This is one of the most significant crossroads in the Queen's Gambit Accepted. White has many continuations at this point. Cheparinov analyzes this position quite extensively. The conclusion is that Black has excellent counterplay in all the lines.
