Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Queen's Indian Defence is one of Black's toughest and most respectable choices against queen's pawn openings and is a favorite of world class players such as Vladimir Kramnik, Vishy Anand, Michael Adams and Judit Polgar. From the outset Black employs the dynamic principle of controlling the center with pieces rather than pawns, and this can lead to rich and complex chess. The Queen's Indian is a multi-dimensional opening which appeals to aggressive and positional players alike. In this treatise, openings expert Jacob Aagaard delves into the many strategic and tactical ideas available to both sides. Using illustrative games, Aagaard guides the reader through both the fashionable main lines as well as the tricky offbeat variations. (6 1/4 x 9 1/4, 144 pages, diagrams)

About the Author

Jacob Aagaard is a young International Master from Denmark who has carved out a deserved reputation as a diligent and outspoken chess author. His earlier opening manuals include Dutch Stonewall and Easy Guide to the Panov-Botvinnik Attack, have been widely admired for the clarity of their approach.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Every chessplayer needs a response to 1. d4. The Nimzo-Indian is well-respected and one of the best against 1. d4 Nf6, 2.c4 e6, 3. Nc3... but what if your opponent plays 3. Nf3? Enter the Queen's Indian, one of the all-time best defenses for Black and played by players of all strengths, from World Champions to club-players. This book contains all you need to start playing the Queen's Indian immediately. If you are a Nimzo player, you must have a book on the Queen's Indian as well. This one is a good addition to your library.

Format: Paperback
Queen's Indian Defence, written by Denmark chess expert and International Master Jacob Aagaard, is an extensive and informative study of a specific chess-playing strategy, one which is often used by the Black side against queen's pawn openings. Most of Queen's Indian Defence is devoted to diagrams and extensive lists of game moves, with commentaries on the wisdom or lack thereof of various possibilities. A superb resource for advanced chess players, Queen's Indian Defence is an especially recommended addition to any dedicated chess player's personal reference shelf for its technical detail and focus on excerpts from sample games.
