Gm Mesgen Amanov – Chess Lessons – Volume 2

Bored of the slow maneuvering play in the Ruy Lopez and Italian Opening? Try the Scotch! It’s simple, as White is aiming for an open game – develop the pieces as quickly as possible in order to launch an attack.

V-01 Chapter 0 Introduction

It all starts with the moves 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 exd4 4.Nxd4 and in about 5 hours of video presentation you’ll become familiar with everything you need to know with White against 1…e5! The lines are sharp (Yes, it’s the Killer Scotch!) as we are planning to get an exciting game.

About the Author:

Is this course for me?

Wherever it’s possible, you will be fighting for the advantage, while in other variations we are just satisfied with a very imbalanced position where hopefully you’ll be more familiar with the plans than your opponent! Sounds good, right!? The material on this DVD has been thoroughly prepared by your author IM Robert Ris, who has regularly played this opening himself with great success, defeating several grandmasters along the way. All his original analyses have been added to the PGN-file as well and contain some amazing ideas, including some untested novelties!

Bonus video! Dedicated to bringing you all the latest opening developments, this video course even covers the game Nepomniachtchi vs Ding; a game where Nepomniachtchi plays the new idea 13.Qf3!
