A few days ago, I published a video lesson about the Queen’s Gambit chess opening for White. A lot of you (the RCA students) have asked me to talk about the opening from Black’s perspective. Therefore, today we will learn how to play the Queen’s Gambit as Black.

It is one of the most classical, solid chess openings for Black. It was played by pretty much all the world champions, including Magnus Carlsen, Bobby Fischer, and Garry Kasparov.

This solid chess opening will serve you for lifetime; it works from beginner to advanced level, even to the level of world champions. Additionally, you secure yourself from any early opening tricks and attacks by your opponent.

Hopefully, it will be easier for you to play this opening after this video as I’m going to give a complete overview of all the opening moves and common middlegame plans.

You can find the PGN of this opening below:
