Chessable is constantly adding new chess opening repertoires, from trusted chess masters and amateurs alike,
whether you seek the Queen's Gambit, Ruy Lopez or anything in between, you will find it all on Chessable.
IM John Bartholomew has developed a comprehensive Scandinavian repertoire for Black based on 1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nc3 Qd8!
This repertoire has been developed with the direction of an International Master and aims to provide a simple way to get a playable position out of the opening.
From the Advanced to the MacCutcheon, from the Tarrasch to the Winawer and even the Exchange variation plus some rare openings! Includes detailed explanations for ideas and moves about each variation. For players who truly want to master the French defense.

Chessable is honestly one of the best trainers I use to prepare myself for tournament play. You guys honestly made something beautiful and extremely useful and even if you dont realize it, but you seriously made learning chess and chess openings so much better for people.
I love the Chessable learning system and how the site operates. I am learning very rapidly and didn't know ANY prior chess openings.
Chessable requires far less effort to learn chess openings than reading and re-reading books and is far more effective than watching videos, of which to be honest, how many people can watch a chess video and remember permanently the one or two lines presented?
Chessable has changed the way that I think about opening preparation. The preparation of lines for structured learning and spaced review has taught me to make more effective use of the tools I already had. I'll be using Chessable from now on, both for my own work and for my students.
I've never used a tool so good for self-directed learning in chess. The ability to make my own private drillable repertoires from analysis of my games has accelerated my understanding of the ideas behind the openings I play, and the speed of my pattern recognition is gaining me all kinds of time against my opponents right out of the opening.
I've tried using other tools (e.g. Chessbase, Chess Position Trainer) to build and study an opening repertoire. However, I always stalled out after building a few lines since when I went to train with those tools it wasn't fun, was cumbersome, and felt like work. Chessable makes training chess openings fun and now I'm actually learning the repertoire I'm supposed to know!
