The Open Games after 1.e4 e5 offer White a huge choice. Part 1 of this series covered the mainline Spanish and recommended the Marshall Attack. But what do you do against the Exchange Spanish, the Scotch, or the Italian Game? The DVD answers those questions and many more.
Based on his own Black repertoire, GM Jan Gustafsson provides you with all the tools you could need to successfully combat 1.e4 with 1…e5!
Learn why 4…Nf6 spells trouble for Scotch enthusiasts, how to deal with the Evans Gambit and why the King’s Gambit should be accepted.
Popular lines like 5.d3 in Spanish are covered. Just like the Four Knights, the Ponziani, or the Vienna Game.
Exotic lines like 1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 Nf6 3.d4 get their treatment as well. Many novelties and improvements over existing theory are to be found along the way.
After watching this DVD, you will no longer fear your opponent’s deviations from mainline Spanish. In fact, you will positively hope for them!
In 19 chapters, with a running time of 5 hours 34 minutes, you can complete your e4 e5 repertoire.
