"The Opening of The Future"

GM Leonid Shamkovich, Chess Life, November 1997

The Scandinavian Defense (also known as the Center Counter) has become much more practiced at all levels of play. The newest line of play, the Portuguese Variation, has attracted increasing attention by everyone from Grandmasters on down. The theory is in a state of development as more and more analyzing effort is applied. This trio of players and authors spent eighteen months playing and analyzing the line, with excellent results in practical tournament conditions. Their experience and the master games available to date, provide a road map for the venturesome player who wishes to engage in attacking chess, with possibilities for both sides, but an edge for the attacker. Put some life in your game by trying the Portuguese Variation!

With the amount of attention this line is getting in Inside Chess, En Passant, ChessLife, and similar magazines a high quality book on this line by a strong master is inevitable. This is not that book.

To date there is no orderly collection of information about this variation in print. A number of the positions we examine have been seen before but dismissed with a one move suggestion. Master annotators seldom have the space necessary to fully demonstrate how they came to their conclusions nor for those valuable verbal explanations that make their very bare analysis accessible to us. We have tried to remedy this with our own analysis and commentary. Where our analysis extends beyond the master's or Grandmaster's review the material carefully before trying it in your own games.

We recommend this defense because we win games with it and it's fun. In our experience players are first drawn to chess because we enjoy the tactics. Though the Scandinavian proper may be a truly hypermodern defense (Shamkovich), the Portuguese is more Neolithic.

We hope you find these positions enjoyable and instructive. We do appreciate concise rebuttal of our conclusions and corrections to any of our analysis. It is the quality and quantity of your reaction that will help us decide if a second, improved edition is justified.

We would like to thank the Courtland High School Chess team and the Spotsylvania Chess Club for their original analysis and Hugh Meyers, whose book "The Nimzovich Defense" has been invaluable in providing us with analysis of positions that could occur from the Portuguese move order as well.
