About this video:
The Queen’s Gambit is the most popular queen’s pawn opening which can lead to all types of positions, ranging from positional to sharp and tactical. After the moves 1. d4, d5, 2.c4, Black has two options: 2…e6 which will lead to the Queen’s Gambit Declined, or 2…dxc4 which is the Queen’s Gambit Accepted. In this video I will show you a very brief overview of each of these opening lines, as well as an opening trap that black can fall into if he tries to hold on to the gambit pawn on c4. With the recent release of the Netflix series “The Queen’s Gambit”, I am sure a lot of new and beginner players are curious what this opening is all about. In this short and concise 3 minute video, I will break down the important things you need to know about the Queen’s Gambit! This video’s primary audience is beginner and novice players who have never heard of the Queen’s Gambit before.
