Queen’s Gambit Declined for Black – Trilogy Bundle by GM Alex Colovic
The definitive course to play the QGD with Black is here!
And this course has absolutely EVERYTHING you need to play against any 1.d4 setup… and many more besides.
This Queen’s Gambit Declined repertoire is a course for serious students who want a solid and life-long repertoire based on GM foundations.
GM Alex Colovic has used his personal analyses and preparation to create it and he has played the variations in this book with great success.
The opening of the World Championship matches (as described by Kasparov) can now be yours and you can start using it right away!
Following the successful repertoire based on the QGD, Alex decided to complete black’s repertoire by covering all the possible alternatives white has after 1. d4 d5.
The main of these is undoubtedly the Catalan, a very popular opening at all levels and favorite of such players like Vladimir Kramnik and Wesley So.
The Catalan is a very rich opening with a lot of positional ideas for both sides. Alex’s proposed line against it is the relatively recent discovery 5… Bd7 (after 1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3. Nf3 Nf6 4. g3 dc 5. Bg2).
GM Colovic covers lines of defense against the Reti, the Bird’s Opening (1.f4), the King’s Indian Attack, the Nimzo-Larsen Attack (1.b3), forcing a transposition against The English (1. c4), and other various sidelines.
Stop jumping from one defense to another.
Master the QGD and use it to dominate d4 players for the rest of your life.
What will I learn from this Trilogy?
As the title suggests, this repertoire is based around the classical e6 and d5 pawn structure, with Be7 and Nf6 being played in most lines.
You’re going to learn how to play the Queen’s Gambit like a pro… but it’s more than that.
GM Alex Colovic shows you how to play this system against the Catalan, Reti, London System, King’s Indian Attack… even 1.f4!
This saves you a ton of learning and makes sure you always feel at home, no matter what your opponent throws at you.
- Defusing the Bomb. When White plays the Exchange variation, you need to be ready for the dangerous Botvinnik variation (diagram). White can easily roll those center pawns and push Black off the board. GM Colovic shows you a way to prevent White from executing this plan, however, using one subtle idea.
- The Anti-London System. The London System continues to increase in popularity – you need to know how to deal with it. Alex shows you how to attack White’s position with a queenside minority attack or a sneaky sequence that leads to dominant central occupation.
- Perfect Timing. This is an ultra-precise repertoire that prevents AND counters White’s plans with multi-purpose moves. See how we stop White’s attempt at a minority attack with Rb1 and b4 with this Nf6-e4-d6 maneuver… dominating the queenside with a knight outpost and control of the a-file.
- GM Explanations. GM Colovic teaches you the ideas for both sides, why he recommends one move over another, and how Black should continue in each line. This gives you the understanding required to play for the win with confidence.
- Isolating the Queen’s Pawn. The …c5 break can detonate White’s center, free your pieces, AND leave White with an isolated queen’s pawn. Alex reveals how to time it to perfection for maximum effect
- Controlling the Catalan. Catalan players usually know the basics of their system well. What they don’t want is to have to deal with annoying moves by Black… but they’re going to have to! Two bishop moves force White to abandon their usual plan and spend all their time reacting to your light-square invasion.
What are you waiting for? Let’s go and dominate the QGD as Black!
