Playing 1.d4 d5 – A Classical Repertoire Nikolaos Ntirlis provides a top-class repertoire for Black after

1.d4 d5 with the Queen’s Gambit Declined. This is truly the Rolls Royce of chess openings, having

been played with both colours by most World Champions and world-class players for more than a

century. As a lover of chess history, Ntirlis has distilled the best ideas from the games of legendary

players such as Rubinstein, Capablanca and Alekhine, and updated them using the latest analytical

tools that modern technology has to offer.

Playing 1.d4 d5 – A Classical

In addition to the classical QGD, Ntirlis offers a complete repertoire against the Catalan, London

System, Torre and all other significant alternatives from move 2 onwards. Every chapter begins with

a discussion of typical plans, pawn structures and other relevant themes. This book also includes two

bonus chapters covering 1.c4 and 1.Nf3, providing a starter repertoire for QGD players against both moves.

Nikolaos Ntirlis is an opening expert, and an adviser to numerous GMs.

Praise for the author’s previous work:

Playing 1.e4 e5: “Thorough, high-quality and surprisingly easy to read.” GM David Smerdon

“It’s simply remarkable that there is so much useful information in only a modest-sized book. The

author has a knack of finding the ideas that really matter without overloading the reader with

superfluous references.

I have to admit that when I was allocated this book as one of those to review I imagined something

rather tedious, but I was wrong! It’s an impressive effort yet again. There is so much new stuff,

involving practical choices that don’t overload the memory, and yet the plans and thematic

middlegames and endgames are also explained. So put away your prejudices, get hold of this book,

and you’ll realize that playing the Queen’s Gambit can be great fun!”
