In this video, I play a crazy and instructive game one of my favorite and most thoroughly prepared variations of the Queen’s Gambit Declined. Afterwards, I show some sweet opening traps which can emerge from the opening as well as a “secret” novelty that I prepared over 5 years ago, inspired by deep computer analysis. See the timestamps below!
