SHOPWORN - Bologan's Ruy Lopez for Black

How to Play for a Win Against the Spanish Opening

Product Code: SWB0164NIC


The Ruy Lopez remains one of the most popular chess openings, both at club level and among top players. In this book, the companion volume to his acclaimed bestseller Bologan’s Black Weapons in the Open Games, Victor Bologan presents a cutting-edge repertoire for Black based on the favorite lines of Magnus Carlsen and Levon Aronian.

Bologan’s Ruy Lopez for Black is more than just a well laid-out, clearly explained and eminently playable set of responses against the Spanish Opening. Bologan presents TWO different options against every main line. It’s actually two books in one!

And there’s a lot more:
-- A quick guide for those who are new to the Ruy Lopez and have little time
-- An instructive strategy section: how pawn structures define important themes
-- The Fast Lane repertoire (in every chapter) indicates the minimum you need to know
-- A wealth of new ideas in old lines
-- A clear-cut presentation of tactical motifs
-- Transpositions and move-order subtleties are clearly identified
-- Traps & tricks are visually marked
-- Many examples from Bologan’s own games
-- 2200 games referenced and presented in a separate index
-- Lots of practical tips

Victor Bologan has taken the chess opening repertoire book to a next level. He has created a unique instrument of chess instruction for players of almost any playing strength.
