The Scotch Game is the most “open” of all the Open Games. In fact this is the only really Open Game, in its essence, which matches the traditional terminology.
The Modern Scotch
In order to avoid this overburdening, almost all games in this book have been played by representatives of the target group. Accordingly, readers will feel 'at home', so to speak, because they are familiar with how players of that skill level react in certain critical positions, and how the advantage often shifts from one side to the other due to typical mistakes. And learning from the mistakes of others is more pleasant in the sense that it is painless!
