The Queen's Indian (1.d4,Nf6; 2.c4,e6; 3.Nf3,b6;) is renowned as one of Black's most solid defences to 1.d4. Indeed this reputation sometimes deters players from adopting it as it can be difficult to generate winning chances for Black. However, ambitious lines of play do exist and in this book Andrew Greet presents a repertoire for Black which offers the prospect of a more unbalanced game, with winning chances, without compromising excessively on soundness.
In sixteen chapters he covers both the main Petrosian and fianchetto systems as well as less common lines with e3 and Bg5 for White. He recommends playing the forthright 4..Ba6; against both 4.a3, and 4.g3, whilst opting for 4..Bb4; against 4.Nc3. In all cases this leads to an uncompromising struggle rather than safe equality.
With both verbal explanations and analysis Greet highlights the principal tactical and positional plans for both White and Black whilst building a sound repertoire for the second player. Andrew Greet is a young International Master, a former British Junior Champion, and is one of the UKs most rapidly improving players.
