Queen's Gambit Declined: Baltic Defense[edit | edit source]

2...Bf5??[edit | edit source]

An Underrated yet rarely played move against the Queen's gambit, this move develops the light-squared bishop so-called Declining the gambit, this is less common as white has no problems to equalize the game, the Baltic Defense is an uncommon response to the Queen's Gambit.
