Book DescriptionThis book fills a gaping chasm in chess literature. For years, those who wish to take on the black side of the Ruy Lopez have had to muddle their way through against the variety of alternative openings at White's disposal. This book gives a choice of systems for Black, to counter anything White might try in order to avoid the Ruy Lopez - the Scotch, King's Gambit, Italian Game, Four Knights, etc. Grandmaster Emms is ideally qualified to deal with this subject, having faced them as Black, but also having played many of them as White before graduating to the Ruy Lopez.

About the Author: John Emms is one of England's strongest grandmasters, and a regular member of the national team. He is also a skilful and versatile writer: he has several opening monographs to his credit, and was co-author of both "The Mammoth Book of the World's Greatest Chess Games" and "Nunn's Chess Openings.
