The world's oldest opening variation, 3...Qd8 in the Scandinavian Defense, has resurfaced in the last decade to give players at all levels a winning edge. Whether you prefer a sharp tactical game or slower positional maneuvering, the 3...Qd8 Scandinavian provides a genuine alternative for club players and grandmasters seeking to play for a win from the outset. Elite players such as Magnus Carlsen, Michael Adams, Josif Dorfman, Kiril Georgiev and Julian Hodgson, among others, have successfully raised the banner of the 3Qd8 Scandinavian. As the author demonstrates, this variation's doubtful reputation is undeserved. It is completely playable and easy to learn! 3Qd8 is not the ugly duckling sibling of 3Qa5 and 3Qd6 it is a superb alternative. International Grandmaster Zviad Izoria reviews the book with the comment author Dan is a strong player, but he is an even stronger teacher. The book sparkles with practical insight, lucidly explained. Softback, 176 pages. Dimensions 150 x 226 x 15mm, 249g
