Yelena Dembo and Richard Palliser

The Scotch Game (1.e4,e5; 2.Nf3,Nc6; 3.d4,exd4; 4.Nxd4) takes it's name from an 1824 correspondence match between Edinburgh and London and was popular in the 19th century as it leads to an open position, allowing for tactical piece play. It lost popularity during the 20th century as Grandmasters preferred the more subtle Spanish Game, but was revitalised by Garry Kasparov in the 1990s, who discovered many new ideas in the opening, and is used today by Magnus Carlsen, Alexander Morozevich and Sergei Rublevsky.

In this book, Yelena Dembo and Richard Palliser take an in-depth look at the modern-day Scotch Game, with analysis of Black's major 4th move alternatives 4..Nf6; and 4..Bc5; There is a chapter on Tony Miles favourite 4..Bb4; as well as a final chapters examining 4..Nge7; 4..Qh4; and 4..g6.

Drawing upon their own considerable experience in this opening, Palliser and Dembo provide thorough coverage of both the critical main lines and the tricky sidelines, outlining the key tactical and positional ideas for White and Black.

Yelena Dembo is an International Master from Greece with numerous tournament successes to her name, including the bronze medal at the 2005 European Women's Championship. Richard Palliser is an International Master with numerous tournament successes to his name, and in 2006 he became Joint British Rapidplay Champion. He has already established a reputation as a skilled and thorough chess writer.
