I saw on amazon.com an announcement for new QUALITY CHESS book written by Denmark

**GM** **Lars Schandorff (Elo 2505)** about QGD:

# Paperback:

**256 pages**# Publisher: Quality Chess (

May 2009)

# Language: English

Does anyone know which lines will it cover?

For me is more importantly to ask if this proposed repertoire can be complemented with Vigorito's "Play the Semi-Slav" which I play?

I hope that's possible and even recommendable to combine QGD and Semi-Slav.

What do you think guys?
