The Queen's Gambit Accepted - Chess Opening Software on DVD
The Queen's Gambit Accepted
When players of the White pieces make the switch from 1.e4 to 1.d4 openings, the Queen's Gambit is often the first opening they learn. Consequently Black players must be equipped to meet White's pseudo-sacrifice of the c-pawn.

Lilov advocates flexible plans based around the structure ...a6, ...b5, ...Bb7, ...Nbd7 and ...c5, describing the positional and tactical ideas in a clear and understandable manner.
