Andrew Martin: The Scandinavian the easy way – 2nd edition

Today’s round is over, and you’re burning the midnight oil, looking for ideas to spring on tomorrow’s opponent. You enjoy the Scandinavian, but feel your play has been predictable of late. IM Andrew Martin did provide you with some insights on that DVD you purchased a while back, but the theory he explored now seems somewhat outdated. New ideas are coming to light in this opening, and you want instant access to some illumination of your own.

Well, search no longer, the wait is over! IM Martin has delivered a comprehensive update to his previous material, particularly emphasizing GM Tiviakov’s early Qd6, pawn to c6 idea, which IM Martin characterizes as being “very, very solid.” Through an easy-to-follow investigation of some recent games, including ones from the 2009 edition of Wijk aan Zee and 2007 Melody Amber, this enhanced version of the DVD can legitimately claim to aid you even further in your employment of the Scandinavian in future. Enjoy!

International Master Andrew Martin is 51 years old and lives in Yateley, England. He is a professional chess teacher and writer. His new Scandinavian (or Center Counter 1.e4 d5) DVD provides an opening for Black which will furnish good results in the shortest possible time. Martin has written extensively on this opening and here he turns his attention to 1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nc3 Qd6!?

Playing flat out for the win against 1.e4 is never easy, but here we encounter a variation where Black can do just that! All relevant second and third move alternatives for White are covered. This DVD is a boon to all chess players, but particularly to those with limited time for study, who wish to incorporate a new defence into their Black repertoire with the minimum possible hassle. Video running time: four hours.
