Robert Ris

Back in the 1950s, it was Botvinnik who popularised the Exchange Variation of the Queen's Gambit Declined. The setup, which involves putting the knight on e2 in combination with castling kingside, was revolutionary at that time. Until then, White had either placed his knight on f3 with the idea of starting a minority attack on the queenside, or on e2, where it was normally associated with the intention of castling queenside and preparing a pawn storm against the Black King.

Kasparov, Botvinnik's pupil, would soon follow in his mentor's footsteps, bringing yet further refinements to this flexible system. This PC-DVD offers a complete repertoire for handling this solid opening, often featuring a dynamic approach to pose the opponent more practical problems.

Both of the main continuations 3..Nf6 and 3..Be7 are covered in two separate parts and their inherent differences and possible transpositions are mentioned wherever they arise. After seriously studying the theoretical lines, the strategic ideas and tactical motifs, you will surely be able to answer the quiz questions successfully and integrate this World Champion repertoire into your own games.

Born in 1988, Robert Ris is an International Master who has represented The Netherlands in various international youth events.
