Sam Collins

In this PC-DVD Sam Collins presents a repertoire for Black based on the Queen's Gambit Accepted, 1.d4 d5 2.c4 dxc4. Rather than get involved in the heavy theory of the Classical Main Line, the lynchpin of the repertoire is the active development of the queen's bishop, after 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.e3, with 4..Bg4, a system used regularly by several GMs including Miles and Kogan. The resulting positions have close similarities to the Nimzo-Indian and Slav Defences, and Collins explains the way for Black to approach the middlegame with confidence based on a blockade and light square strategy.

The popular 3.e3 is met with 3..e5 followed by active development. The most ambitious main option at White's disposal, 3.e4, is met by 3..Nc6, a long time favourite of GMs Baburin and Stevic and one which gives Black rich tactical possibilities of breaking down the White centre. Finally, gambit lines with Nc3 and the positional approach with an early Qa4+ are also covered. The resulting repertoire is solid, reliable, and suitable as either a main weapon or an occasional surprise choice.
