Winning with the Ruy Lopez (Part 1) - Chess Opening Software on DVD
Winning with the Ruy Lopez, Vol. 1
In the first part, Vol. 1, the top Moldovan player deals with systems in which Black avoids the main continuation 3...a6 on his third move. These include exotic lines such as 3...Nd4, 3...Nge7, 3...g6 and 3...Bc5, which should however not be under-estimated. In 3...f5 (the Schliemann Defense) he examines a system which has even found its way into the repertoire of many top players. But the most important variation starts with 3...Nf6 and in its main move order leads to the Berlin Wall. Nowadays, anyone who plays the Ruy Lopez must know above all what he is going to play against this modern defense.
