|Queen's Gambit Declined|
(to) ORTHODOX DEFENCE
Black declines to take White's QBP and pushes his
King's Pawn out for double QP support,
freeing his KB - the most common reply. The Orthodox (fully
set after six moves) avoids an early exchange but has a drawback unlike
Slav or QGA lines - it shuts Black's QB in,
limiting its development.
