The Queen’s Indian Defense is one of the most popular closed openings. Avoiding the pin along the E1–A5 diagonal, white defers his queen’s knight development. Unlike in the Queen’s Gambit, black does not hurry with the D7–D5 advance, and his light squared bishop fires along the long diagonal. It is supported by the f6 knight, which provides Black good control over the key e4 square.
