Scotch Game - Nigel Davies

Product Code: WIN0112CB

Over 5 hours of instruction from legendary British  
Grandmaster Nigel Davies 


Product Description

The Scotch Game (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4) by Nigel Davies is a lively alternative to the Ruy Lopez which has found favor amongst many leading Grandmasters. The top experts in the Scotch include former World Champion Garry Kasparov as well as Alexander Morozevich, Sergei Rublevsky and others. The space White takes early in the game can easily translate into a powerful attack against Blacks king. In addition to this White can often usually some damage on Blacks pawn structure by capturing Blacks knight on c6. These dual aims have certainly been giving Black plenty to think about. On this DVD Nigel Davies introduces the viewer to the Scotch and first shows an easy way to get on board this opening via the Scotch Four Knights (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.d4). He then goes on to show how this can be built into a World class Scotch repertoire in which Black has more options but also comes under more pressure.

Whilst the presentation is focused mainly on those who wish to play White, Davies also suggests lines for Black. This makes it essential viewing for players wishing to play either color.

Video running time: 5 hours

  • Scotch Game for White Catalog Code: B0046EU
    The Scotch Game is a solid positional opening which has been studied and tested in practice by the strongest chess players in the world in a period of more than two centuries. The idea behind the Scotch Game is simple and easily understandable. White eliminates in a purely mechanical fashion Black's e5-pawn which impedes his ambition to dominate in the centre.

    The Scotch Game is an ideal opening weapon for White: it's ambitious and yet totally sound; it's also easy to learn but leads to a wide variety of positions. It was a particular favourite for Garry Kasparov, who invigorated it with a number of key discoveries to make it an opening to be feared throughout the chess world. In this book, Yelena Dembo takes a modern-day look at the Scotch Game.
