Product Details

Deciding what to play against the Spanish Game (Ruy Lopez) 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 the Spanish Torture. In this book, GM Glenn Flear studies a wide variety of ambitious and offbeat answers catering to many different playing styles. From the super-solid Berlin (used so successfully by Vladimir Kramnik in his World Championship match victory against Garry Kasparov) to the uncompromising Schliemann, there is enough choice here for any prospective black player facing the Spanish. On the other hand, this book is also perfect for Spanish enthusiasts looking for the best way to deal with those who avoid the main lines.

Author English GM Glenn Flear is one of the most popular professionals on the European tournament circuit. Now living in France, Flear has numerous chess books to his name and has earned a reputation as a skillful and diligent writer.
