Vassilios Kotronias

This book presents a Black repertoire based on the Scandinavian Defence with 1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nc3 Qd6. This is the safest, yet an aggressive, queen retreat. It allows Black to increase pressure on d4 with ...0-0-0 or ...Rd8 while keeping coordination in the centre.

Grandmaster Kotronias offers new plans for Black in one of the the most topical lines of the Scandinavian Defence. They are backed with deep analysis based on solid chess understanding. Each of the book's eight chapters has three sections: Main Ideas (an overview), Step-by-Step (more detailed analysis) and Annotated Games (the repertoire in practical play). In these chapters Kotronias examines White's alternatives at moves 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 before exploring the main lines of play.

GM Vassilios Kotronias is ten-time champion of Greece and a famous theoretician. His peak rating so far is 2628, achieved in 2008.

Published 2016, softback, 220 pages.
