Black simply sprints out of the blocks to get his/her desired position locked-in first and avoid getting mired in White’s preparation. That is the Accelerated Queen’s Indian.
By playing an early b6 to get the light-squared bishop to b7, FM Krykun points out that Black can severely restrict White’s options. It means you:
🔹 Skip the Catalan;
🔹 Avoid the Nimzo.
That’s two of the most popular and most theoretical avenues to go down against the QID just cut off. White may well be out of book already.
So instead of learning three openings as Black, you need just one: the slimmed-down and supremely-flexible Accelerated Queen’s Indian Defense.
The Accelerated Queen’s Indian Defense is:
🔹 Incredibly light on theory;
🔹 Easy to learn;
🔹 Highly original;
🔹 Rich in counterplay;
🔹 Playable at any level;
🔹 Fully engine-checked.

Rapid chess and blitz chess tournaments
Blitz chess (also known as speed or fast chess) is a type of chess in which each player is given less time to consider their moves than normal tournament time controls allow. Openings, tactics and strategy are same.
