Understand the Scotch Game

We are happy to invite you to our camp Understand the Scotch Game.

Nowadays, 1...e5 is a hard nut to crack for any 1.e4 player. In most of the Ruy Lopez and Italian lines, you need to know a tremendous amount of theory in order to fight for some tiny edge.

If you need a practical repertoire that limits Black's options, the Scotch Game is your choice. Contrary to other classical openings, in Scotch Game, Black can easily get crushed if he is not very precise. Even in the main lines, White has many interesting possibilities to create at least practical problems for his opponent.

In this camp, our expert team of grandmasters will provide extensive knowledge on the typical pawn structures, endgames, and theoretical trends. Additionally, the most important positional and tactical ideas will be covered.

You get 9 hours of high-level training which will provide you with the following benefits:

✅ Better understanding of the Scotch Structures

✅ In-depth insights of the typical positional and tactical patterns in Scotch Game

✅ Better feeling of the connection between the opening and the middlegame

✅ Better understanding of the dynamic positions

✅ Better general chess understanding
