Openings for Beginners
Hello, my name is Michael Bates and I am here to offer a monthly blog containing easy to learn and useful openings and developments for rookies. I thought I might start with a very good development using the universally hated Scandinavian defense - which is hated for a good reason. The Scandinavian defense itself is a brilliant way of getting the queens off the board (if that's the kind of game you like to play) and this particularly development of the fore mentioned opening ends with both queens off the board and white with no real position. Here it is...
Remember, this development is only useful is you prefer a game without queens, however even if you're unsure on the idea please try it out. If you have any questions or ideas concerning this months issue please leave your question as comment below and I shall reply in due course.
