FIDE Master Yuriy Krykun offers a repertoire for Black with 1..e5; against 1.e4. He focuses on verbal explanations and the understanding of typical positions, rather than overwhelming the reader with countless variations and analysis. The 1..e5 repertoire is one he has played over several years and taught to his students.
Here he shows how to handle the Black pieces in openings such as the King's Gambit, Bishop's Opening, Scotch Game, Four Knights, Giuoco Piano, and Ruy Lopez, where he recommends playing the Open Defence for Black.
Yuriy Krykun is a FIDE Master from Ukraine. He has been Ukrainian Junior Champion and won a bronze medal at the European Team Championship U-18 for the Ukrainian Team. He has also been teaching chess for several years.
