Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

The writing is clear and concise with flashes of humour. The material is well organised and the book is attractively laid out and printed. The impression is given that the author, who has deep knowledge of his subject, has held nopthing back from the reader - this is how Sadler sees and plays the Queens Gambit Declined. A particularly valuable feature is the question and answer approach which is done in such a way that the reader feels he or she is receiving a personal tutorial from the grandmaster.

Queens Gambit Declined wins Book of the Year on its own considerable merits; but the judges also feel it has additional value as an example to future authors and publishers of openings books. --British Chess Federation

If I were grading this book as a teacher I would give it an A+ --Georgia Chess

Présentation de l'éditeur

Grandmaster Sadler explains the key ideas behind the Queen's Gambit Declined, one of Black's most dependable responses to the queen's pawn. Covering the major variations in popular practice and highlighting developments, the book offers theory and thematic ideas.

Excellent book if you play the QGD as BLACK 24 juillet 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I emphasize that this is an extremely good book, with clear explanations, and provides everything you must know to play the QGD as Black. For those of you that play it as White (I play the QGD from both sides, but luckily, I play the Exchange as White, and lines with 4...Be7 as Black, which are both covered in this book), this book is not complete, and you will have to find other sources for lines in which Black delays or avoids the bishop development to e7 (i.e. The Cambridge Springs variation, just to name one). Other than the omissions of the 4...Nbd7 lines, it's an excellent book.

I tip my hat to GM Sadler. 19 septembre 2000
Par A.J. Goldsby I - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
When you first pick this book up, you are struck by its quality. Nice binding, sturdy and beautiful flex-cover, clear typesetting, white pages that are opaque and have almost no bleedthrough. (Hold one of the pages up to a strong light and you can barely see the print on the opposite side of the page!) I have spent many hours in this book preparing this review, (somewhere between 20-50); and the book shows almost no wear-and-tear at all! The publisher obviously went through great pains to produce a quality product. Begin to read inside and you see the author has produced an atypical opening book also. The first part of the book is an introduction where the author explains some of the basic ideas of the QGD in a very instructive question and answer format. The author even delves into things not usually covered by an opening book, such as various possible move orders and how they affect what you have to learn in the Opening as White and Black. I went through the book with a fine-toothed comb looking for errors of the type that chess books usually contain dozens, if not hundreds, of. I found no typo's, no diagrams with an incorrect position, no games with move pairs left out, no mistakes in analysis, etc. Obviously, the PC and chess programs are having a huge impact on the market of chess books. The publisher must also have a first-rate proofreader, someone who obviously must play chess!! (A plus over convention!)
The author covers virtually every line one could conceive of facing in the Queen's Gambit Declined, with one notable exception. (The Cambridge Spring's Defense for some reason is left out.) The author continues his highly instructive question and answer format. He often delves into questions of strategy and many other topics not usually covered by a chess opening's book. He uses complete games for a model, and the student always gets the entire game - from move one to the resignation! (An improvement over the norm for chess books.)
Chapter One covers the Lasker's variation, an early ...Ne4 in the QGD. Chap. Two covers the Orthodox variation with 6...Nbd7, (Old Main Line), and the various systems after 7. Rc1, c6. (He covers Capablanca's freeing maneuver, [early ...dxc4; and/or ...Nd5;]; without crediting the originator.) Chap. Three covers the Orthodox variation and even covers the ultra-modern 7. Rc1, a6!? Chap. Four covers White's 7th move alternatives in the Orthodox variation. Chapters Five and Six covers the Tartakower Variation in complete and up-to-date fashion. Part Two, [Chapters 7 & 8]; covers The Exchange Variation. (An early cxd5 by White.) The final section of the book [Part Three], deals with such lines as an early BxN/f6 by White, and 5. Bf4.
The coverage in this book is very modern; you will find very few "old/classic" games in here. (Necessary for a modern chess opening's book. The average game dates from 1985 to the present.) The coverage is fairly balanced, with both White and Black on the winning side. The author has obviously strived to make this a quality book and has even turned it into an outstanding teaching vehicle! I can find only a few minor faults with this book. I am puzzled how one could write a book on the "Classical" QGD and omit coverage of the Cambridge Spring's Defense. (A modern player can certainly count on seeing this line even today. It is certainly as likely a variation as any of the others in this book.) Some of the games that I thought were key to opening theory, (See any Informant, NCO, or MCO-14.); are not necessarily covered here. I am not sure what the criterion was for choosing the games, and the author does not explain that in this book. And the author often lets 25 moves of a game, (or more) transpire with virtually no comment. (BUT! ... the games are ALL complete; again, this is a plus over "the norm.") But again, for the most part, these concerns are trivial. I will conclude my critique by noting that the Table of Contents serves as an outstanding index of the variations, and there is a first-rate index of complete games.
If I were grading this book as a teacher might, I would give an "A+." On a scale of 1-10, I would give it an 8.5, which is as high a mark as I would be willing to give any opening book. (A pity. Had all of my concerns mentioned here [above] been addressed, I might have awarded it a perfect 10!!) This book sets a very high mark for a book on the openings, and all the others that come after this one will be judged by this new standard. The bottom line? If you currently play the White or Black side of the QGD in either postal or over-the-board chess, then you MUST buy this book! If you are below 1800 USCF and spend just a little time with this book, then you will probably learn as much as you have ever learned from any chess book, period. This is the highest praise you will ever see this reviewer giving an opening book.

A must-have for the 1 d4 player (and his opponent!) 16 septembre 2005
Par Aluminium Horse - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book deals mainly with 4...Be7 systems, with chapters on the Lasker, Orthodox systems, Tartakover, Exchange, Bxf6 systems, and the 5.Bf4 variation. All 110 games in these chapters are complete. The notes are relevant and a joy to read, with complete sentences to explain the moves or alternate moves in question, unlike those in pretentious books that try to be exhaustive by giving too many irrelevant variations, and are just tedious and boring. The last chapter, "Queen's Gambit Declined: `General Knowledge'", is four pages long and has two classical traps and a paragraph for each of four alternatives to 4...Be7: Bb4, Nbd7, c5, and dxc4. If you want a QGD book that delves deeper into some of these variations in addition to 4...Be7, check out Bogdan Lalic's "Queen's Gambit Declined: Bg5 Systems", also from Everyman and runner-up for the British Chess Federation's Book of the Year award, the award "Queen's Gambit Declined" got in 2000. If you want a book on the Tarrasch, look at Jacob Aagaard's "Meeting 1 d4".

But missing those lines is not a problem, because the author aims to give the reader a general understanding of the opening, not a complete repertoire. To this end, Sadler uses several examples from other queen pawn openings (like Semi-Slav, QGA, Nimzo-Indian) which are not digressions, but very relevant because after all, "(t)he QGD is the original queen's pawn opening; modern systems such as the Slav and Semi-Slav or the QGA have developed by taking features from the QGD and accelerating them..." (Sadler).

Sadler uses a wonderful Q&A format to explain the ideas of the QGD. These questions and answers give the reader a more solid understanding of the opening based on general strategy, which is something missing in most chess books.

"QGD" gives advice to both sides on how to transpose into the QGD. For example, 3 Nf3 avoids the Nimzo-Indian, 1 c4 avoids the QGA, and then 1...e6! can transpose into the QGD. This flexibility makes knowing the line good for both Black and White players.

Don't let the fact that Sadler deals mainly with 4...Be7 discourage you from buying this book. You will find after reading it that 4...Be7 can be much more solid than the alternatives, and that your game against other queen pawn openings will improve.

Both Slav and Queen's Gambit Declined books - great! 12 octobre 2003
Par John Simpson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I have read many chess opening books. These are easily 2 of the best opening books I have ever read. The author selects a few relevant games and explains them in some detail. They have a question and answer style that gives much information in a few pages. He doesn't try to analyse every sub variation. They are well organized, and well written. I have had the books for a few months, and still go back to refresh my memory. They are permanent additions in my chess library.
I recommend them highly to anyone from beginner to expert level.
(My current USCF level is A - 1990)
I would also buy any book GM Sadler writes on openings.

finally I came to understand my opening 28 janvier 2008
Par Rafael - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Since I was about 11 years old I always played the queens gambit (I am 23 years old now but took a 2 year break from chess). I was always a strong youth player that never really had chess coaches to teach openings , but I was always though in competition .

Most of my QGD knowledge is from rueben fine's book ideas behind the chess openings. I was fine with that because I could just play the opening getting nice positions with plans and I could spend the saved time on sharper systems with black!). I wil now give my argumentations why it is great to have studied and read this book.

1. QGD has the ideas of all QP opening in it (Sadler) so you will really benefit even if you wil play the slav or QGA later on
2. It is more based on understanding (where to put your pieces, pawn structure psycholigical factors, move orders) so you will actually learn more about chess (themes like hanging pawn, minority attack isolated pawn kingside attack are all there!!)
The question and answer format really helps with this, especially people like me who dont't work much with coaches and stronger players. ( NB sadler uses a question and answer format to explain the ideas)
3. A lot of white players play it because it is safe, playing and knowing it with black gives good chances to equalize in the opening!
4. The quality of the book is great, I found only one move pair left out in game 48 that was all. The diagrams and games are very good.

some disadvantages:

1. only Be7 (no cambridge springs etc)
2. Capablanca - Alekhine match is not really mentioned
3. A bit slow sometimes, if you are new to the opening you can get bored (very subtle games, many draws etc..)

Anyway for my it is one of the greatest chess books I have read, and i will reread it in the future.

About the required audience level, great for club players/ even youth players I think, stronger players (candidate masters etc) will need more and sharper stuff i guess and will already know most of it. I am rated about 1900 but i think 1400-2100 rating level can benefit the most.

bravo sadler !
