Scandinavian Defense: The Dynamic 3..Qd6 (2nd Ed)

Scandinavian Defense: The Dynamic 3..Qd6 (2nd Ed)

Ref: r9055

Product type: Printed book

Michael Melts

In 2001 the original edition of this book became a best-seller as it showed how 3..Qd6; could be a viable and dangerous alternative to the usual 3..Qa5; in the Scandinavian. Since 2001 the 3..Qd6; Scandinavian has been taken up by players at all levels, including Grandmasters such as Tiviakov, Nisipeanu, Ye Jiangchuan, Dreev and others. It has proved a completely reliable defence, even against players rated 2600+.

For this new edition the author has included large amounts of new analysis and updated most of the 40 key games that are used to illustrate the theory of the 3..Qd6; Scandinavian.

There are six main parts to this book: Part 1) an introduction showing typical plans as well as opening disasters which should be avoided by both sides. Parts 2-6) Analysis of the main continuations (after 1.e4,d5; 2.exd5,Qxd5; 3.Nc3,Qd6;), including 4.d4,Nf6; and alternatives for both White and Black on moves 4 and 5.

Hundreds of game fragments and 40 complete games are included in the analysis, making this a comprehensive and up-to-date manual on this opening. Includes an index of complete games and bibliography. Michael Melts is an ICCF International Master.

Published 2009, softback, 301 pages.
