✅ The BEST Chess Opening for Black Against 1.e4 –
📥 Download the PGN of this opening analysis here –
In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov teaches you an aggressive chess opening as Black to crush your opponents when they play 1.e4 as White. It is an interesting variation from the Scandinavian Defense which happens after 1.e4 d5.
However, after 2.exd5 instead of taking the pawn back immediately with 2…Qxd5, you can play 2…Nf6. And when White tries to protect the pawn with 3.c4, you can play 3…e6 Black, which is the Icelandic Gambit.
The Icelandic Gambit is an aggressive choice of opening for you as Black. Instead of taking the pawn on d5, Black looks to give up the material in exchange for lead in development and a semi-open file for the queen. White has to play very carefully in this line as there are many different traps.
What’s really cool about the variations that GM Igor Smirnov shows you in this video is that, a lot of them gives you a very simple and forcing victory against the most commonly played moves by White (including grandmasters and strong players).
