Bored of the slow manoeuvring play in the Ruy Lopez and Italian Opening? Try the Scotch! It’s simple, as White is aiming for an open game, develop the pieces as quickly as possible in order to launch an attack. It all starts with the moves 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 exd4 4.Nxd4 and in about 5 hours of video presentation you’ll become familiar with everything you need to know with White against 1…e5! The lines are sharp (Yes, it’s the Killer Scotch!) as we are planning to get an exciting game. Wherever, it’s possible we are fighting for advantage, while in other variations we are just satisfied with a very imbalanced position where hopefully you’ll be more familiar with the plans than your opponent! Sounds good, right!? The material on this DVD has been thoroughly prepared by your author IM Robert Ris, who has regularly played this opening himself with great successes, defeating several grandmasters. All his original analysis have been added to the PGN-file as well and contain some amazing ideas, including some untested novelties!

Bonus video! Dedicated to bringing you all the latest opening developments, this video course even covers the game Nepomniachtchi vs Ding, played on 22nd of July; a game where Nepomniachtchi plays the new idea 13 Qf3!
