Chess Masterclass | Owen’s Defense!
There are many popular chess openings for black against e4 such as the French Defense, Pirc Defense, Scandinavian Defense, Caro-Kann Defense, Sicilian Defense, Nimzowitsch Defense, Alekhine Defense. However, usually white is prepared for all of these chess openings for black, and they take a ton of time to learn the opening theory. Is there a move we can play as black that takes white by surprise but still holds that high level of chess strategy? The answer is yes, and in today’s video I’ll be showing you the Owen’s Defense, a dangerous and fun chess opening for black against e4. By playing b6 on the first move, we want to fianchetto our bishop on b7 and put immediate pressure on the e4 pawn. We will then develop our pieces, aggressively fight for counterplay, and sometimes look to checkmate the opponent’s king.
Most “Learn to Play” chess opening videos, I cover the chess opening lines, chess opening variations, chess opening theory, chess opening moves, chess opening tricks, chess opening traps, and chess opening ideas as whole. However, in today’s video I start a new series, in that I play the chess opening and explain my thought process through it. This is meant to give you the practical side of the opening. It is one thing to learn from a chess book, and another to gain experience through playing a chess opening system. Hopefully this will give you Owen’s Defense players some new ideas!
