An opening idea that will knock many White players off their feet!
Former Russian Chess Champion Alexey Bezgodov provides a complete repertoire for Black against 1.d4, starting with the cheeky move 2…c5! against both 2.c4 and 2.Nf3.
In this opening, the Double Queen’s Gambit, Black’s approach is as active and ambitious as White’s is in the Queen’s Gambit.
After thoroughly analysing and investigating, Bezgodov has put the opening to the test in practical grandmaster play. It not only turned out to be playable – it also brought him success, and not just because of its surprise value.
Bezgodov’s conclusion is that there is no clear and compelling way for White to reach an advantage against 2...c5. In The Double Queen’s Gambit he provides dozens of exercises to test your understanding of this surprising chess opening system.
