<strong>Queen‘s Pawn Openings</strong> such as the Trompowsky, the London System, the Colle System, the Torre Attack, and many others crop up all the time at club level.

From time to time they are popular with Grandmasters too!

It is essential for players at all levels to have something prepared, or one runs the risk of getting smashed by a standard plan.

The players who use these openings usually understand them very well and know how to angle the game in the right direction for them and the wrong direction for you.

Andrew Martin Queens Pawn Openings
Queen’s Pawn Openings – IM Andrew Martin

Queen‘s Pawn Openings such as the Trompowsky, the London System, the Colle System, the Torre Attack, and many others crop up all the time at club level.

From time to time they are popular with Grandmasters too!

It is essential for players at all levels to have something prepared, or one runs the risk of getting smashed by a standard plan.

The players who use these openings usually understand them very well and know how to angle the game in the right direction for them and the wrong direction for you.
