Deciding what to play against the Ruy Lopez (or the Spanish Game) is a perennial problem for those who play ¿open games¿ as black. It¿s all too easy to play too passively and end up having to face what is known as the ¿Spanish Torture¿.
In this book Grandmaster Glenn Flear studies a wide variety of ambitious and offbeat answers catering for many different styles of player. From the super solid Steinitz to the uncompromising Schliemann, there¿s enough choice here for any prospective black player facing the Lopez. On the other hand, this book is also perfect for white players looking for the best way to deal with those avoiding the main lines.

* Written by a Lopez expert
* Ideas and strategies for both sides
* Up to date theory on the sharpest lines
