The Scotch Opening is one of the oldest and most popular chess openings due to the direct nature of play by white, beginning with 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 – immediately opening the center and placing pressure on black´s e5 pawn. This is a very natural way to play with the white pieces because you start with an extra move – generating favorable conditions for rapidly opening the position. In the below chess video from the chess DVD ¨Opening Pawn Structures – Advanced Concepts¨ by IM Dr. Danny Kopec, you´re going to learn about the underlying principles of the Scotch Opening and how each side can fight for an advantage in this classic chess opening. You will learn that while white often achieves slight but lasting pressure out of the opening, black´s position is very solid and black can normally obtain adequate counterplay with energetic development.
