I am looking for a nice, solid, easy to learn defence against e4. I have tried the French and the Caro-Kann but they were all got hard to play. I was thinking about the Scandinavian. I don't like 1. e5. Can anyone recommend a good one?
Originally posted by I Falco IWell you wanted a good defence against e4 and I gave you one and it isn't that hard to play after you play it a couple of times. just make sure you play unrated games with it first.
I will look in to the Sicilian, but it requires a lot of studying and it has a lot of theory.

you could try the robatsch defense, ive never used it but it's different than e5 so it may be what you're lookin for. GL
1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nc3 d6 4.Nf3 c6
Originally posted by kmac27It's true. Even if you pick an opening and buy a chunky book dedicated to it, your opponent will often deviate from its lines within 6 moves! As someone with a very poor memory I find this comforting. In general, studying tactics (chess puzzles) will equip you better.
[b]i know your trying to learn an opening that is easy but all openings have their lumps and bumps. there are no easy openings to learn because theres so many different variations.
