Queen's Gambit Declined 3

An agressive system against the Queens Gambit Declined.

[2 of 6] Nf8

Introduction to Nf8

In this variation, Nf8 statistically is the most popular black move from the queens gambit exchange variation openings database file obtained from the University of Pittsburgh. It does follow logically from blacks Re8 move. It simultaneously unblocks black's queens bishop and prepares the move Ne6 as well as protecting the h7 square.

In the following game, Petrosian does not play for a direct attack, but instead plays a fine positional game, and reduces black's middlegame counterplay with a nifty rook move.

The following two games feature the nice knight manoever of Ng3-f5. Littlewood in the following game, calmly plays it in order to pick up blacks light squared bishop. The interesting twist is that later he is fully prepared to give this up for a different sort of advantage. The Bareev E - Grosar A game which follows shows white playing the position differently by accepting doubled pawns to get a semi-open g file.
