Do you play the Scotch? Or do you want to play the Scotch?

Whatever your answer this should be one fun tournament.

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.

 

Tactics are the key to these games... so what are you waiting for!
Starts April 1st 2010.
