Here's a PGN of the lecture.
While I was looking for a video showing White‘s chances here, this video is still very nice.
Anyway: I have two questions: 1. How does c6 prepare Bg4? 2. On 12:00, is Ne5 Qxd4 Rd1 an idea for White? The chess.com datebase only gives one game, namely http://www.chess.com/games/view?id=13172297 – which was won by White.
I was always it to it , Now I mastered it, thanks
@Reversearp please play c5 immediately to 2.e5 preventing white d4. You get advanced french with no weakness of c8 bishop. Goodluck.
I have been trying to play this defense in 10 minute games but rarely does my opponent actually play 2. exd5. They usually play 2. e5.
Any opinions on the best response to 2. e5? I haven't found one that I'm happy with.
This is a great video and is a great way to learn openings.
I think Eugene Perelshyteyn does the best opening videos I've ever seen. Clear, thorough, and at a pace you can grasp. Excellent teaching by an obviously superb player. More.
Thank you for this analysis. I'm going to try it out.
My fritz 12 likes a6 instead of c6
thanks. will give it a try.
Prefer play 3...Qa5 or check with Queen
My notes from video:
GM Eugene Perelshteyn teaches the Scandinavian Qd6... Part I of II seriesThe Scandinavian Qd6 is as follows: e4 d5, exd5 Qxd5, Nc3 Qd6, d4 c3. At this point white has 3 main alternative:
I like how Black:
I like how White:
The Nc4 variation, Nc4 Qc7, Qf3
The main line analyzed goes like this: e4 d5, exd5 Qxd5, Nc3 Qd6, d4 Nf6, Nf3 c6, Ne5 Nbd7, Nc4 Qc7, Qf3 Nb6, Bf4 Qd7
nice n suprising ;)
i'm one of the top specialists in the world when it comes to the 1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nc3 Qe5+?!
it's good enough to beat GMs in quick games but too weak in slow games to be taken seriously. everyone who knows recognizes that 3...Qd6 is now the mainline Scandinavian with Tiviakov leading the way. bronstein played it from time to time and it comes almost as a surprise that the variation isn't named after him. many in the past have been burned when it comes to claiming respect in the openings. hey, nobody said opening theory was fair.
Very instructive video !! i learnt a lot !!! thanks GM
I LIKE IT.......
How do you think this would fare in a medium size tournament of let's say 100 people. Let's assume maybe 6 FMs, along with only a few IMs. Would a ELO 1700 player or below be able to play this and get to a playable middlegame?
I've been looking for an opening to replace the French Defense for some of my students as they don't seem to have the tolerance of slow games.
Besides the videos you will produce, can you recommend a few key games in this variation for further study, sort of like homework?
Or perhaps, there is a pgn archive of this variation somewhere that you know of?
One suggestion would be to follow this game up with an annotated game article that we can play through with typical themes out of this opening, which can complement this video lecture.
Excellent video and instructions. Thanks!
The site is excellent. The lessons should also cover the magazines and newspapers quiz where some very useful problems appear regularly. These are the stocks of real games and therefore one has to be involved as there is running commentary available right away with answers leading to mate after successive attempts. If one can solve each of those puzzles then I think he is improving.

GM Perelshteyn looks at an unusual defense to e4, which he thinks is perfectly viable for black. Your opponents won't be very well prepared, and there is plenty of new territory to investigate. This video covers the most important mainline. Watch for part 2!
