Seems like very bold opening for Black, with many risks...
Great video! Thanks!
I have a friend who is rated 2200+ that made a career out of using this opening both otb and a lot in correspondence chess. He was very successful with it!
a disadvantage is that the black's queenside pieces are undeveloped.
Very -interesting- video with great analysis.
i use this opening alot and would love to see a video on the line i throw in alot black responds to nf3 with f5 the colorado counter or aka the lean var.
I also enjoyed the measured pace and the clarity with which the moves and variations are presented. Also Charles' obvious pleasure at introducing excitement into the game with bold moves! After my own heart...
After e4,nc6 nf3 i like and have had good results 4 black is f5 the Colorado counter a fierce opening
I'll give it a whirl.
Nice, but I would need a whole series on this interesting opening. Not enough to go on.
The Nimzowitsch Scandinavian is 1. e4 Nc6 2. d4 d5 3. exd5 i believe
Do you plan to ever follow this excellent introduction up by recommending a repertoire for after 1.e4 Nc6 2.d4?
Thanks -- great intro to the system. I have looked at it before, but you made me see the possibilities for Black with fresh eyes.
im a member and it oonly givrs me demos
To learn how to play this opening if White plays 3. Be2, what recent match did you suggest to study from Hungary? Peter ? vs. ? Thanks!

Charles picked up chess in middle school after his mother bought him what was then Chessmaster 7000. The one and only chess club in town was in an establishment previously owned by his father so needless to say he felt right at home. Locally, he excelled at the scholastic level going on to become Florida's K-12 Champion and Denker representative. He currently attends College where he plays Board two for one of our coutry's top chess teams.
