Examines in-depth strategies of both the Nf3 & Ne2 variations.

Worthwhile for both side of the coin.
  

I know I've made some very poor decisions recently, but I can give you my complete assurance that my work will be back to normal. I've still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the mission.

Two more sources to consider with chapters on the "QGE": Kasparov's DVD on the Queen's Gambit, and Shereskevsky's Soviet Chess Conveyor (both with Nge2/0-0/f3 setup I think). Haven't studied either yet, but both products have good reviews.

There is alsop a chapter on this in Berliner's infamous "The System". In my opinion this is enlightening on early move orders (first 8 moves or so) but not at all on the further play.


Shereshevsky text is an astonishing piece of work. Of course rather dated, but the content remains highly instructive.

Berliner book - er, well. hmmm. Game Estrin-Berliner a work of genius, but his system isnt much of one. A paradigm that isn't.

There's a Chessbase CD by a certain IM Heinrichs, well worth your time.

There is also a good chapter in Yermolinski's road to chess improvement.


While there are some common themes, no doubt, do bear in mind that Yermonlinsky focuses more the Nf3 version than the modern Nge2 version.

And I suspect its 'McDonald', rather than 'McDonalds'. Though heard a rumour he is offering free fries with his new french book.

Yes he does, rumour has it that it carries explosive content:

NIC did a CD on it if I remember (not at home).

Ward covers it a bit in his QG book iirc.

Best is Sadler, so you are not missing too much.

Think a previous thread mentioned a structure type book on this. Maybe you could trawl through. By a US author I think, sorry bit vague. Someone raved about it here. Post back if you find!

McDonalds has quite a good chapter on it in his starting out book, albeit from a black perspective. It may be too basic for you though as it is a real starting out book.

Am I missing something or are there really no in-depth books about the Queen's Gambit Exchange (QGE) variation? Sadler's Queen's gambit book has some discussion and Cox (1.d4) and Dunnington (Attacking with 1.d4) have some discussion on it and I play it mostly on the basis of these two.  I've also seen the Chessbase CD and wasn't all that impressed (poor presentation and structuring of the material, the author doesn't really guide you).

Admittedly the good thing in a way is that I get away without really knowing too much against my usual 1900-2300 opposition, because the structures are really simple, but wouldn't it be even better if I understood them...? The thought occured to me (yet another time) while playing an FM yesterday and sweating about whether he'd have some good defence prepared or whether he would understand what he had to do (neither of which he did, thus he lost).

Still, doesn't anyone have any recommendations for useful sources? I guess it's too much to ask to have such a great book as e.g. the QID book by Wells on every opening, but maybe this is where one can hope some publisher would write "Challenging the QGD" or "The QGE explained"...
