Strike First with the Scandinavian (PC-DVD)

Strike First with the Scandinavian (PC-DVD)

Ref: CBDSFS

Product type: Software for PC

Christian Bauer

The Scandinavian is a rarely employed opening on the hightest level und guides your opponent on much less familiar terrain than for example the Sicilian, French or any 1.e4 e5 system. This rareness leads to a slow evolution of theory and avoids the need to permanently refresh your knowledge on the latest developments. After 1.e4 d5 Black fights for the initiative from move one on without any precedent manoeuvring.

Despite its bad reputation (which can be advantageous for you), which relies to great extend on the loss of tempo through 1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nc3, the Scandinavian is a reasonable and underestimated opening. It enables Black to alternate between a wild or a more restrained game, having attained a solid position and excellent control over the white squares after the exchange of the b4 bishop against the c3 knight. Don't hesitate - make the Scandinavian your opening weapon!
