What are the best repertoire or opening books, if any, advocating the g3 variation vs the Queen's Indian for White, in terms of analysis and verbal explanations of the main plans / ideas?


1 Answer 1


I will have to explore through some of the new (and older) literature on the Queen's Indian to give you better recommendations, but off the top of my head I recall at least 3:

Finally, to browse through the known variations and played games, there are many websites that you can look through, but these two should get you started:

  • How about some sort of repertoire book with this line? Do you have The Kaufman Repertoire for Black and White? Feb 12, 2016 at 18:27
  • I have the starting out Queen's Indian book. It goes over a bunch of different lines, with explanations of the ideas behind each line and illustrative games. For each line it also tells you if you need to know the theory or if you can get by using opening principles. Based on that information, you can just pick the lines you like and that will be your repertoire. Feb 15, 2016 at 13:40
  • The Kaufman Repertoire covers the Grunfeld as the d4 defense for Black. Feb 15, 2016 at 13:40
