Top-Level Repertoire against the Scandinavian
Introduction by the Author
This video series builds a complete repertoire against the Scandinavian Defence.
I will give a very objective and practical understanding of this opening. The course is about 7 hours long. I will provide all the knowledge you need to play against this opening. Additionally, since I try to be as objective as possible, the course will be useful for players who play Scandinavian with Black.
Players from different levels can benefit from this database. In my opinion, it will be helpful even for top-level players since I reveal some important novelties.
Besides the Video Version and the PGN files, this course includes two very important features - Memory Booster and Computer Practice.
The Memory Booster helps you to interactively train the most important theoretical variations.
The new feature called Computer Practice allows you to play several critical positions against a strong engine. In most cases, you need to convert an advantage in a typical position. After practising these positions with an engine, you will be confident when similar situations arise in your practical games.
