🔹 Brutally PUNISH Scholar’s Mate & Early Queen Attacks –

In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov teaches you how to brutally punish early queen attacks and Scholar’s Mate ideas. It is surprising that millions of chess players still try to fool their opponents with the Scholar’s checkmate, but it’s time to punish them.

You will learn how to deal with different kinds of early queen attacks and Scholar’s Mate. For example, the most direct way where White plays 2.Qh5, then 3.Bc4 aiming for the Qxf7 checkmate, and the other approach (by advanced players) where White plays 2.Bc4 first and then bring our their queen.

It is important for you to know not just how to stop such attacks, but be merciless and brutally punish your opponents for trying such lame tricks against you. You will learn some aggressive ideas and counter-attacking moves that forces your opponent’s queen to retreat, or trap their queen, or even checkmate their king!
