    I'm searching for some good analysis and lectures on the following openings:

    - The Scottish
    - The French, advance variation
    - Kingsgambit, Falkbeer Countergambit


    Do you have some good links to open resources?
    All sorts of material (Forums, YoutubeVids, Personal Websites, etc) are fine with me. As long as the mentor knows what he is talking about

    this is the best chess video I ever saw, it's about the 1990 match between Kasparov and Karpov. It's not specifically about any of the above, but it features some scottish games.

    OK, if you're short on time, and could ever think the best chess video ever made in the universe turned out to be a waste of time for you, don't trust me on that, it may not feature any scottish games (I remember it does, but my memory isn't exactly perfect), but it does talk about the opening briefly.

    Edit: All right I went back and watched like the first quarter and it sure does feature a scottish game.

    That link from heinzcat is good.
    Most likely one of the best vids on the WWW( )

    I've been playing the Scotch at blitz (4/0) on another site seeing if
    I can get a 4...Qh4 game. No luck there but I did get a 4...Qf6 game.

    5.Nb3 Qg6 6.Be2 is all theory.



    I've always disliked having a Knight on b3 or a Black Knight b6,
    They never seem to get back into the game.

    Black should not take the e-pawn or the g-pawn.

    Black took the e-pawn and ended up with the Queen on f8.

    I pulled off a lovely picturescue mate including a way to sac my b3 Knight.
    The final position is very pleasing to the eye. (to me anyway).
    The material is dead even, the symetrical placing of the pieces.

    I use the 'Danish' move order to avoid Petroffs, Philidors, Elephants
    and Latvian Gambits. Of course Black can swing into a variation
    of these openings but in my experience they rarely do at Blitz.

    I did not expect that move on d5, to be honest
