About the Course Additional Information Reviews (0)
Product Description

1.d4 is very popular on all levels of play from Club Players to super Grandmasters.

Nearly half of all games are played with the Queen’s Pawn Opening.

And that’s no surprise. White gets a solid position, with a minimum risk.

If you want to win with Black you need an opening that is solid enough to counter White’s immediate threats and aggressive enough to give you the fighting chances.

IM Renato Quintillano recommends Kramnik’s top pick… the Semi-Slav Defence.

Some of the things you’ll learn:

  • How to beat the Catalan System? Catalan is a very ambitious setup for White, where Black needs to be careful not to get under a strong attack. IM Quintillano shows his ‘trademark’ way to counter this system. [this proved to be effective at under 2500 level]
  • Handling the Qe3 Sideline. Recently many strong GMs start playing the Qe3 idea, and Black shouldn’t underestimate the full potential of this tricky move order. IM Quintillano gives you a full preparation against anything White can throw your way.
  • Tackling the Mainlines after 4.e3. This is the most classical setup which you’ll see in about 80% of all Semi-Slav games. If you learn how to play this, you’ve done with most of your Semi-Slav preparation.
  • Beating the off-beat lines. IM Quintillano demonstrates how to win against rarely played lines and variations [spoiler alert: most of them are far inferior and much easier to deal with compared to the mainlines].
