I need information on:

a) The most important lines
b) Key ideas and strategies

I'd appreciate links to websites which contain such information - the more comprehensive, the better.

I picked this opening because it led to positional play, does not require me to study lots of theory, and makes it difficult for Black to avoid my preparation. Based on these factors, do you think the English is a good opening choice?

The Queens Gambit Decline can only be played if your opponent plays the Queens Gambit...

I think you should take your time and look at the French Defence which leads to a similar position.

I think this is a great opening. If you're a french player, the pawn structures observed in these openings are quite similar and compliment each other.

Just stay away from the Marshall defence :!: :lol: An ECF: 135 played it against me OTB a couple of weeks ago (I couldn't believe it) after 3...Nxd5 I followed up with the immediate 4. e4 (which isn't actually recommended) then after 4...Nf6 I went for 5. e5 (an innovation of Ray Keene - stopping blacks only real threat of getting e5 in himself at some stage) and went on to win comfortably.

The man I played was getting on in years a bit, and part of me thinks he thought I'd played something else, when he went for 2...Nf6 because after 3.cxd5 he seemed to look confused and studied for a good 10 minutes - still a wins a win :lol:
