The Queen’s Indian Defence is one of the most reliable defences against 1.d4, and features in the repertoires of many of the world’s top players. Black develops with a solid pawn structure and uses his pieces to put dynamic pressure on White’s pawn centre. GM Michael Roiz supplies an elite repertoire built upon sound positional principles, offering active piece play and a fight for the initiative.
This book provides a companion volume to the author’s highly-regarded book on the Nimzo-Indian Defence. The starting point of the QID is 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 b6, but Roiz also covers 3.g3, the Catalan, to complete his repertoire.
Grandmaster Michael Roiz has represented Israel many times. As well as his numerous tournament victories, he is an Olympiad Silver Medallist and has been ranked in the world’s top 40. In recent years he has focused more on seconding, helping elite grandmasters in top tournaments, the Candidates and even a World Championship match.
