The Queen's Indian Defence has the reputation of a very reliable system for
Black. Although his chances of obtaining sharp double-edged positions are

Black chances of seizing the initiative even in calm variations.
The opening monographs on the QID, as a rule, focus on the move order 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 b6. What is Black supposed to do if the opponent wishes to avoid the
QID and begins the game with the moves 1.Nf3 Nf6 2.c4, or 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3?. How should Black deploy his pieces and what should he aim for in the middlegame?
