    You could play for a transposition but it's unlikely to happen.

    To make things clear
    Queen's gambit = 1. d4 d5 2. c4
    The queen's gambit declined is the recomended responce
    and continues 2. e6

    There is also the queen's gambit accepted - this isn't very good because it is very difficult to keep the pawn against a good player.
    I wouldn't recommend this but it follows 2. dxc4

    Another move is the slav defence, this follows 2. c6

    I think the Chubaka defence is the best.

    nothing wrong with the QGA, perfectly playable and has been played by kasparov, Anand,Kortschnoj, Baburin, Ibragimov, Ivanchuk, Hübner, Lautier, Yakovich, etc. It's completely sound.

    QGA is fine as long as you dont try and hang on to the pawn.
    The problems start with QGA when the opponent tries to keep the pawn. It is fine I suppose, if you black lets white recapture.

    General principles against a gambit:
    1. Accept it.
    2. Don't try to hold on to the pawn.
    Of course, there are always exceptions, depending on your opponent's play. And there are some gambits that you can't decline, like the Cochrane.

    When we say don't hold on to the pawn, does that mean forget about any attempt to make the opponent's effort in regaining it harder even if just a little bit?
  15. 19 Nov '05 16:17
    It means not to attempt it if your position becomes weaker.
