Product Details

Shirov's first Ruy Lopez DVD received an amazing response from the chess playing public. In this second volume, Alexei Shirov continues his presentation with games from his own career, starting in October 2006.

At the elite tournaments of last year and during the candidate matches in Elista (versus Adams and Aronian), Shirov was trusting the Spanish Opening both with the white and the black pieces. As Black, he successfully returned to the system 5. ... b5 6.Bb3 Bc5 (5 games). As White, he had to come up with a plan to face the popular Marshall Attack (8. ... d5) (3 games). Further topics of discussion are the Berlin Defence as well as so important systems of the Closed Ruy Lopez like the Breyer, the Flohr-Saitzev or the Chigorin. Enjoy six hours of chess with one of the best players of our times.

Alexei Shirov was born in Riga just like world champion Mihail Tal, and also his playing style reminds many chess fans of the young Tal. In the beginning of the 90s, a comet-like rise brought the young Latvian to the world top with a short period of time. At age 22 he already had an Elo rating of nearly 2750 and was ranked in the top 6 in the world. Since then Shirov has been one of the best players in the world, delighting all chess fans with original and amazing ideas on the board.
