The Ruy Lopez is perhaps the most classical of all chess openings.
It dates back to the 16th century and has featured in the opening repertoire of every modern world champion.
It is a highly flexible variation: Bobby Fischer used it to create numerous powerful strategic masterpieces.
In the hands of Anatoly Karpov it led to many of his trademark positional squeezes, whereas Garry Kasparov often used it as a springboard for his typically powerful attacks.
Opening Repertoire: The Ruy Lopez is a modern examination of this perennial favourite.
Joshua Doknjas has put together a repertoire for White based firmly around contemporary trends in the Lopez.
He examines all aspects of this highly complex opening and provides the reader with well-researched, fresh, and innovative analysis.
Each annotated game has valuable lessons on how to play the opening and contains instructive commentary on typical middlegame plans. * A complete repertoire for White in the Ruy Lopez. * A question and answer approach provides an excellent study method.
