Queen’s gambit, it addresses the main drawbacks: the trapped c8 Bishop, an unbalanced pawn structure, and a potentially pinned Knight on f6. The opening is named after the many Slavic masters who helped develop the opening theory. The Semi-Slav Defense is a mixture of the Orthodox Queen’s Gambit Declined and the Slav Defense. White very often plays 1.d4, the Queen's Pawn opening - and it's easy to see why. The pawn at d4 is protected, and lines are opened for piece development. The resulting games can be all about strategy and maneuvering or even gambit openings; but pure attacking chess can erupt at any time! No wonder the solid Queen's Pawn is a mainstay among top chess players. Chess Books > Chess Opening Books > Queen's Pawn; Queen's Pawn. Shop By. Clearance Items.
