An opening name derived from an 1824 correspondence game between the English in London and the Scots in Edinburgh, Scotland. However, it was the English who played the Scotch opening.
Do you play the Scotch? Or do you want to play the Scotch? If so, we welcome you to to join the Scotch Fans Team! We have many forums regarding the Scotch, from how to successfully play this remarkable opening, to how to counter any possible defenses against the Scotch, favourite lines of the Scotch and even how to play as Black should the Scotch be used against us.
Being one of Garry Kasparov's favourite weapons, the Scotch is one of the simplest to learn; yet there are so many possibilities and traps that can arise from the Scotch that it can sometimes catch the opponent off guard. The Scotch immediately gives White an advantage right from the beginning as the center is White's, White has more space, there is more room for development, both central pawns are right in the center of the board and White is still one move ahead.
We are also starting to get active in team matches and vote chess games. The time limit varies to suit more people, for example 3 days and 5 days. If you do not know what the Scotch is, check us out!
Come join our team and show everyone the wonders of the Scotch!
