Mendonca: The Keymer Variation - 1.Nf3 d5 2.e3

"1.Nf3 d5 2.e3 was not taken too seriously until recently. When online chess became popular due to the pandemic, this opening was used more often. I discovered how toxic this opening was when I tried to find a way to play against it with Black, and to my surprise, it was not easy. Vincent Keymer uses this opening in a high percentage of his games and gets great positions and results with it. With this opening, White avoids mainstream theory, and there is more than one possibility for each move. The opening is a mix of positional and attacking elements, depending on which system Black chooses. I think most players at club level would not know how to counter this opening effectively."

This video course presents the possible setups Black can choose in great detail. You will learn the key concepts and strategies to add this fantastic opening to your repertoire. An easy to learn yet venomous weapon that will make your opening game more versatile. more versatile. In addition, this course allows you to practice the repertoire with the ChessBase Opening Trainer, guessing how a position came about, or simply replaying the moves at your own pace to understand even more the ideas this opening has to offer.
