From a theoretical backwater to a fully blown main line opening, the rise of the Scandinavian Defence (1 e4 d5) has been nothing short of meteoric. Over the past 15 years the Scandinavian has become more and more popular both at club and Grandmaster level. It even managed to obtain an ultimate seal of approval when Vishy Anand employed it in his World Championship match with Garry Kasparov! This book provides a complete update of Emms's original and best-selling edition of The Scandinavian, published in 1997. Since then there have been many new and important discoveries from both sides of the board, and these are included here.
John Emms is one of Britain's strongest Grandmasters and has represented England in various team tournaments. He has many works to his name, including Play the Najdorf: Scheveningen Style and Attacking with 1 e4, while he is also a coauthor of the very popular openings encyclopedia Nunn's Chess Openings. He resides in the UK.
