The Scotch has long been associated with exciting play, although people often doubt it’s positional base. But the opening has evolved from the swashbuckling games of the 19th century to become a sound, but aggressive, alternative to the evergreen Spanish. In his first Fritz-Trainer DVD, Parimarjan Negi looks at the latest revolution in Scotch theory that has completely changed white’s plans, and once again brought back the interest of the world’s elite. Negi presents not only the white strategies in detail but also outlines a dynamic way for Black to counter this latest trend.

Parimarjan Negi (21) became the youngest GM in the world in 2006, and since then has won many international events, including the Asian Championship in 2012.

Reviews

Negi is obviously quite confident with the knowledge he possesses and the material he presents. His way of demonstrating various lines will be better grasped by players closer to his level. I find the lines are interchanged too promptly, which beginners and improving players might find it a bit too quick to follow. But then, this is probably not an opening for beginners. It is full of variations and long lines, which are well covered by Negi, but one needs an alert mind to keep apace. After all, it is an opening played by the likes of Carlsen, Caruana, Nepomniatchi, Radjabov and Giri, the latest star who picked up on this opening. In the introduction, Negi even gives a somewhat cryptic announcement: “This opening can help the ones that aim at becoming world champions”. Is that you? In that case this DVD will provide you with abundant and well structured material for study, play and analyses.

Fighting against the Caro-Kann with the Advance Variation
Fighting against the Caro-Kann with the Advance Variation
by Viktor Bologan
The Caro-Kann Defence is one of the most solid replies for Black after 1.e4. Bologan's choice of the Advance Variation for White is because of the complex strategical play in which White has a long-term space advantage.
