We have the pleasure to announce that IM Robert Ris comes up with his first opening database - Complete Scotch Repertoire.
The Scotch Game has recently gained popularity as many top-level players have used it frequently. One of the benefits of choosing this opening is that White is taking his opponent out of his comfort zone. The Scotch becomes very popular when Gary Kasparov scored many important wins with this opening.
Nowadays, almost all top players try it from time to time, but Nakamura and Nepomniachti play it regularly and very successfully.
IM Ris is providing us with a complete repertoire for White which offers many new and unexplored ideas. Besides his excellent explanations of the typical plans and ideas, the author provides a number of important novelties.
The database contains 15 Theoretical Chapters and 15 Test Positions.
