Rizzitano: How to beat 1. d4
Rizzitano presents a full repertoire for Black against 1 d4, based on the Queens Gambit Accepted (QGA). The QGA is an extremely popular opening amongst players of all levels, as it gives Black free development and counterpunching potential, especially if White takes up the challenge and tries to set up a broad pawn centre. The QGAs soundness is shown by the number of top-class grandmasters who have used it in critical games - it was a key factor in Shorts victory over Karpov, and has even been used by Garry Kasparov at world-championship level. Rizzitano has chosen to recommend dependable main lines of the QGA, and throughout emphasizes how Black can create winning chances and Whites typical ways to go wrong. The repertoire is completed by a set of weapons against Whites alternatives to offering the Queens Gambit, ranging from the stolid Colle to the weird Hodgson Attack and the reckless Blackmar-Diemer.
