After some chess games, you’ll feel the necessity to learn opening theory. As a trainer, I used to have problems with what opening shall teach beginner and ambitious chess players. Some openings need excellent memory, others need positional understanding. I was struggling for some time but finally, I understood that Scandinavian Defense is the perfect opening to start with!
The ideas behind the opening don’t require strong strategical understanding and an extraordinary memory. You just need to exchange the central pawns, your d-pawn with White’s e-pawn. Then you need to pin the enemy knights by your Bishops and, finally, put your remaining pawns on e6 and c6.
Even a 5 years old kid or a busy adult person can use this opening, Scandinavian Defense, with success after watching my comprehensive, entertaining, and educational videos on this opening system. The only thing I’m asking is just some of your precious time.
Here is what you are going to learn:
- How to get an advantage after the first 10-15 moves
- Learn all the variations; sublines & main lines
- Understand the middlegame plans
- A solid repertoire against 1.e4
