Une variante sous estimee mais dont il ne faut pas espérer plus que la nulle. A utiliser en rapide pour faire perdre du temps a l'adversaire ou en partie longue ou la nulle suffit. Les plans sont simples et évidents. Pour espérer un gain la variante 3. .... Dd6 de Tiviakov est plus recommandée . Avantage de la Scandinave la seule ouverture contre 1.e4 ou les Blancs sont obliges de prendre le pion. La variante 3... Dd8 elle permet aussi de transposer dans une Caro Kahn en évitant la variante d'avance. Bref le titre du livre est juste : simple et solide. Une bonne ouverture pour apprendre aux Jeunes.

3...Qd8 28 avril 2014
Par Gofrillier - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I have always played the Scandinavian but I never considered 3...Qd8 because I was too scared people would make fun of me. After passing the 2200 milestone, I realized I really didn't care what others thought and started to look for slow, relaxing chess. This book is well written and I enjoyed the games presented. Having said that, there still needs to be a book written in the fashion of "How To Think Ahead In Chess" by I.A. Horowitz and & Fred Reinfeld for total beginners. Beginners need to understand "why" each move of the opening is being made. Does this variation of the Scandinavian leave Black with equality and attacking chances? My answer is, yes.

Good book, but it's not always easy to navigate 4 janvier 2014
Par Brian C - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Overall, I like the book, and it has plenty of good information --- it's hard to find a comprehensive treatment of the Qd8 variation elsewhere. The author wrote the book to counter the common belief that this line is less worthy than Black's other third move options in the Scandinavian, and I think he does a decent job.

The Table of Contents:

Foreword by Karsten Muller

Chapter 1
Divine Battles: The Origins of 3...Qd8

Chapter 2
Black Scores 65% with a new pawn move to the 6th!
1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nc3 Qd8 4.d4 Nf6 5.Bc4 a6!

Chapter 3
Michael Adams, the main line and the reversal of Ad Hominem
1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nc3 Qd8 4.d4 Nf6 5.Bc4 c6 6.Nf3 Bf5

Chapter 4
Vukovic's Pet and More Alternatives
1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nc3 Qd8 4.d4 Nf6 5.Bc4 c6 6.Nf3 b5!?
1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nc3 Qd8 4.d4 Nf6 5.Nf3 Bg4

Chapter 5
Lasker's Bishop
1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nc3 Qd8 4.d4 Nf6 5.Bg5!?

Chapter 6
Mortal Battles --- Quiet Continuations

Index of Variations
Player Index

The author talks in the early part of the book about the history of the Qd8 variation and suggests the basic ideas of how to utilize it. Each chapter has an introduction which groups the following games within useful categories. The chapters also have a "quick recap" at the end to offer some brief conclusions on the lines studied in those games. And fortunately, the book has an index of variations and a players index.

I should also mention that the vast majority of the book is a collection of annotated games, and that the annotations can be a bit sparse at times. The main body of the book is 172 pages long and contains 122(!) annotated games; some of these fit comfortably within a single full page. While some games have more prose than others, it's not very unusual for the author to list quite a few moves between annotations, sometimes even in the early stages of a game. The author assumes that the reader can connect a few dots on his/her own.

With so many annotated games within a book of very ordinary size, it can be slightly difficult to navigate at times. In Chapters 3 & 5, it's a challenge to keep track at times because Lowinger will skip back-and-forth between two lines from game-to-game numerous times in the chapter. This might be done because, in some cases, consecutive games eventually transpose to a common position anyway, but he will jump back-and-forth for a different reason altogether in other games. In the chapter 5 intro, he tells us those games are categorized "by conceptual similarities, not identical early move orders" (page 132). The categories are informative (games are grouped by whether White plays Bxf6 or whether both players castle same side), but again, you'll need to look at those games yourself, or the index, to know precisely which line goes with which game.

The chapter introductions and index of variations help you keep track of exactly which games go with which lines, but I wasn't crazy about having to refer to them this often. The book is both well-written and a little hard to follow at the same time.

Despite a reservation or two, it's still a welcome addition to my chess library --- I'm glad I bought it.

Good, solid stuff 30 décembre 2013
Par Parker Rose - Publié sur
Format: Broché
To my knowledge, this is the first full book on this line of the Scandinavian. This may be the author's first chess book, but he has done quite a good job. The book is structured well. It starts with a historical background and a discussion of why the line has had clouds hanging over it.

Rather than give just one line, there are several variations for black thar are explored. But the reader is not left hanging. Lowinger clearly gives the pros and cons of the lines as well as his preferences.

Unlike many opening books, there are a lot of explanations of the ideas involved. The entire line is covered pretty well. Note that it does not cover lines other than those in the 3...Qd8 Scandinavian, I.e., after 1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5, none of the less common third moves by white (such as Nf3 or d4) are covered.

All in all, a solid five out of five.

The whole point of this system is to get into a pretty favorable/solid version of a Caro-Kann 11 mai 2015
Par Erik C. Knudsen - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Want to learn a very solid defense in just a few weekends? Then give this book a read. Daniel Lowinger offers up an interesting move (3...Qd8) in the Scandinavian as an alternative to ...Qa5 or ...Qd6. The whole point of this system is to get into a pretty favorable/solid version of a Caro-Kann. So if you already play that opening, it may be even more of a reason to try out this system as a surprise weapon or maybe you are ahead in a tournament and have the Black pieces in the final round. Maybe play more positional game that offers decent chances but not a lot of risk? It's nice to have options!

The author walks the reader through the history of the opening and then goes into some analysis as to why it was largely forgotten (some games with Michael Adams are covered). After some improvements, the system now has several high-level followers. Note that Carlsen recently trotted this opening system out against Caruana (and beat him).

As to the writer's style, he focuses on plans and ideas vs a lot of analysis. It's a pretty thin book with over 100 games. So in that sense you are getting a lot of coverage but not necessarily tons of deep analysis, which is fine by me as I am only a mid-level tournament player. The author is respected chess coach and very active over the board. The ...Qd8 Scandinavian is part of his opening repertoire. In my opinion that says a lot about this system. If it's good enough for a senior master, then it's likely good enough for just about everyone, especially the adult players who don't wish to spend tons of time memorizing theory.

What didn't I like about the book? At this price (and number of games/pages) it's hard to be overly critical. Maybe some more coverage of 5th move alternatives by White (5 Nf3 or 5 Bf4) since the book tends to focus on lines where the White King Bishop comes out to c4. Off the top of my head I cannot say if there's much coverage to e4 d5 exd5 Qxd5 Nc3 Qd8 d4 Nf6 and now Nf3 [note: I'll edit this review if there are a few games that cover these lines]. Again, I do not want to be overly critical here. A quick search in a database will help churn up some games, or ideas, in any given opening system. So it's not very hard to fill in a gap or two if the book doesn't cover a specific line.


If you want a solid and reliable system that an be learned in a very short span of time, by all means give this book a shot. In my opinion the downside is minimal since you won't invest a lot of time with respect to home preparation and the emphasis here is that you can just "play chess." For those of you who play tournament chess and want more of a stress free approach with the Black pieces, this book is worthy of a read for sure. I don't think the 'maintenance' is is nearly as bad vs some razor sharp systems in the Spanish, Sicilian, Pirc, etc. My overall impression is that Black reaches equality early on (sometimes before move 10) and White can get into big trouble by overextending himself. You'll have to read this book to see if reach the same conclusions!
