Click Here to Watch a Free Preview Of This Chess DVD



The Scandinavian Defense has traditionally been thought of as a sub-standard chess opening for black against 1. e4. However, in the last ten years, the theory of the Center Counter (Scandinavian Defense) has practically exploded as many top players are looking for new alternatives to openings like the Sicilian Defense and Ruy Lopez that have been thoroughly analyzed already.

Many top players have employed the Center Counter with success (current World Chess Champion Viswanathan Anand, American Super-GM Hikaru Nakamura, GM Tiviakov etc..) – contributing greatly to its revival at the grandmaster and club levels alike.

The chess DVD ¨Center Counter Rising¨ features over 2 hours of extremely high-quality instruction by IM Andrew Martin with the intention of showing you the basic patterns, the “don’ts,” as well as the “dos,” to get your opening repertoire up in record time to have you winning games with black against 1. e4

International Master Andrew Martin presents:

  • The Modern Scandinavian
  • Twelve Games Through 2010 Three BONUS games
  • How White Can Beat the Center Counter
  • How Black Can Win with the Center Counter
