Learn the Scandinavian Defense for Black with IM Marcin Sieciechowicz

Most players don’t like memorizing opening theory.

It can be tedious. And it actually doesn’t actually make you a stronger chess player…

Did you know that there’s a simple opening system vs 1.e4 where white’s options are already drastically cut down as early as the first few moves?

And no, this is not about some “come and get me” opening like the Pirc (though even that’s not too bad either!).

This is all about the Scandinavian Defense.

1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nc3 Qa5!?

He’s at… move THREE, and white’s play will already be quite predictable.

There are, like, 3 basic setups you can choose.

As long as you know the plans, nothing white does will surprise you.

That’s the Scandinavian Defense.

This is a full Scandinavian repertoire course from Polish IM Marcin Sieciechowicz – everything you need to solve your opening problems with the black pieces.

The course is a sort of “choose your own adventure” repertoire in that he offers you both a “mixing it up” dynamic approach to the opening, as well as a rock-solid positional approach.

And all ideas have been checked and approved with the 3700 Elo Stockfish 15!

Get this course and you’ll have an up-to-date, easy-to-learn, and computer-checked black repertoire at your fingertips.

Here is what you’ll learn:

  • Dominating Knights! Bishop pair? Nah! In Chapter 21 you’ll discover how to employ your nimble knights and cause havoc in the center with ideas like …Nd5! leaving white in big tactical trouble!
  • The Super-Solid Stockfish Plan! If you’re the type of player who likes to play super safe, super solid chess…this piece trading plan introduced by super engine Stockfish 15 is all you need. Study it, understand it and play it and you’ll hold your own against many higher-rated players! (see Chapter 22!)
  • Crazy Queen Sacs! In several positions, you’ll have the option to throw white into confusion with mind-boggling positional queen sacs like …Qxd5!!? as introduced by GM Van Wely (2688)!

Now is the time to get your black openings in order…and IM Marcin has the perfect “shortcut” system here for you to start dominating tons more games.
