The Scotch Game - Yelena Dembo & Richard Palliser
Paperback, 381 pages
The Scotch Game is an ideal opening weapon for White: it's ambitious and yet totally sound; it's also easy to learn but leads to a wide variety of positions. It was a particular favourite for Garry Kasparov, who invigorated it with a number of key discoveries to make it an opening to be feared throughout the chess world.
In this book, Yelena Dembo takes a modern-day look at the Scotch Game. Using illustrative games and drawing upon her own considerable experience in this opening, Dembo provides thorough coverage of both the critical main lines and the tricky sidelines, outlining the key tactical and positional ideas for White and Black.
