Item description for The Queen's Gambit & Catalan for Black by Lasha Janjgava & Graham Burgess...

Every chess-player needs a reliable defense against the Queen's Pawn Opening. The fundamental question is whether to go all-out for counterplay, which may involve a great deal of risk, or to adopt a more solid, classical approach, and first carefully neutralize White's iniative. This book shows the potential of the latter approach. By defending the Queen's Gambit Declined, Black puts a firm road-block in the way of White's ambitions. If as often happens when faced by a sturdy defense, White becomes careless or impatient, Black is ready to break out and seize the initiative. Janjgava also shows how White's more hyper-modern Catalan treatment can be met with the same strategy, and explains how, once Black has equalized, he can unbalance the position, and play for a win.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Queen's Gambit & Catalan for Black?

Nicely done  Apr 9, 2003
This is a very good GAMBIT chess book, that presents a repertoire for Black for QGD and the Catalan. This book is not heavy on explanatory prose, but iw very nicely laid out and full of practical suggestions (such as playing 3... Be7 instead of Nf6 to avoid a less favorable excahnage variation).
