Learn the Sicilian Scheveningen – Chess Openings Explained

Jonathan Schrantz teaches you lines in the Scheveningen of the Open Sicilian. See black’s advantage to having a modest little center. Prepare to strongly focus on the Keres Attack.

Umut Atakisi vs Loek van Wely, 37th Chess Olympiad (2006): B81 Sicilian, Scheveningen, Keres attack


  1. show the Sicilian tamianov variation please

  2. Kid, shut your mouth. You can learn more by being quiet

  3. This is a great lecture. And Jonathan can joke too.

  4. I got almost all the puzzles wrong. Anyone else?

    p.s. Thank you for the wonderful content. You are an excellent teacher. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I need all variation of Sicilian pls pls pls

  6. Schrantz's Opening lecture is so good, But sad part is, he is delivering it to Kids class, huge gap between contents and learners. Boss, either Explain openings to your own channel or record it from matured players class.

  7. How does playing a6 stops g4, why couldnt be played in the next move following up e6?

  8. Can u please explain Sicilian Kan variation

  9. please make video on another variations of sicilian defence

  10. thank you Jonathan for the lucid explanation. Sad that the kids sort of spoiled this.

  11. londooooon system pls๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

  12. Why does this erin Lynn not shut up in every video!

  13. The kids need to be taught not to interrupt without a very good reason.

  14. It is their class, so of course their going to call out

  15. I'm going to be a little self indulgent (if that's okay with me), but I watched this video today, then immediately played this game in which everything worked out for black with very little effort, even though white made natural moves (thanks!): 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 a6 6. Be3 e6 7. Qd2 Be7 8. f3 Nc6 9. Bc4 Bd7 10. Bb3 b5 11. Nxc6 Bxc6 12. g4 Qc7 13. h4 Rd8 14. h5 h6 15. O-O-O b4 16. Na4 Rb8 17. g5 hxg5 18. Bxg5 Qa5 19. Bxf6 gxf6 0-1

  16. Thank you Jonathan Schrantz for your teaching.
    Everything was first class. Your preparation was outstanding.
    I have a better understanding of the Scheveningin Defence, thanks to you.
    I really appreciate all your effort, understanding and time your shared with everyone.
    I can see you a good, humble man with a good heart.
    Thank you.

  17. "A move so simple, even the kids in the audience can find it."

    Jon Schrantz channeling his inner Ben Finegold.

  18. Dan ne ma chu ca, Jo na than san tranz, Ben fine gol, Ben si man, Ya ser se ra wan, Mayk cum mer, Ar jen on the Shay ve ning gon, Ba no ni, Ben co, Nim zo vitch, Quen in di an da fen se, Kin in di an da fen se, Ga run fewd, Kin gam bit, Nai dor fe, Ing lish, Da ra gan, Sa la ve, Dut che…

  19. Iโ€™m more annoyed about the people complaining about the kids than of the kids themselves.

  20. Be careful when shaving-in-England, you just might get attacked by the English.

  21. thanks for your incredible explanation, we easily learn

  22. Scicilian Scheveningen against sozin plssss

  23. 39:45 kid: "it's hanging"
    Schrantz: proceeds to point 5 pieces defending the bishop

    Damn he really learns a lot from finegold

  24. As a Dutch person I am qualified to say that your pronounciation of Scheveningen is not bad at all. The people from the deep south tend to pronounce the ch/g sound soft, like you do. You could pretend to be from Breda ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. That kid ruined this video. It's so hard to focus on what he is teaching

  26. that intro music even makes mark zuckerburg start dancing

  27. I wonder how many of the people who commented still even play chess

  28. Pls make a franco benoni defense videio
