Chess Explained : The Queen's Gambit Declined
By Rizzitano
What do you think of this book ?
Does it deal adequately with Ragozin and Vienna variation ?
Would you recommend it on these lines ?

Good Reply to Tartakower

Hi chess friends. I am playing the semislav but I fear the Botvinnik and the antimoscow variations, so I am planning to face Bg5 with the Cambridge Spring. But I am concerned because very few people p...

Why does QGD score so poorly?
Hi everyone,
I'm wondering why the venerable QGD, often referred to as rock solid, shows such dismal statistics for black in nearly every line.  Often, black doesn't even win 15% of the games and...

Tartakower against 5. Bf4?
The theory on 5. Bf4 mostly focuses on either the 6...Nbd7 or 6...c5 lines. Pardon my ignorance but why isn't the tartakower setup (1. d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Nc3 Be7 5.Bf4 0-0 6.e3 b6) played more ...
