Destroy your opponents with this dynamic weapon against 1…e5 players!
Tired of long theoretical Ruy Lopez games? Bored of having to face the Berlin Defense? Take your opponent into different territory early on by hitting them with the Scotch!
This dynamic opening offers White both great attacking chances and a completely sound position and has been used to great effect by both Garry Kasparov and Magnus Carlsen – a high recommendation!
The Scotch Opening gives White:
All this, if you know how to handle the White side.
With a deep examination of 8 Super GM games, Grandmaster Damian Lemos shows you how White can play for an advantage every step of the way – regardless of Black’s continuation.
If Black plays the aggressive 4…Qh4 then we will develop in such a way that he is soon overwhelmed by our pieces and facing a very dangerous attack.
If Black plays the main line with 4…Nf6 then we will quickly get a long-term positional advantage and leave his pieces on inferior squares.
4…Bb4 might be played, encouraging c3 taking away the square for our Knight. Garry Kasparov shows us why we should be happy to do this!
Black’s logical Bc5 also plays into our hands. This Bishop will be exchanged and we will start a fearsome onslaught against the Black King.
Stop playing what your opponent wants you to play and start Crushing Black with the Scotch Opening!
