As a direct result of this, the Scotch Game, a dynamic and sharp opening, has once again become popular at all levels of chess.In this easy-to-read guide, Grandmaster and openings expert John Emms goes back to basics, studying the essential principles of the Scotch Opening and its numerous variations.
