Slay the Spanish

Weapons Against the Ruy Lopez

Product Code: B0323EM

Book Description

Former US Open Champion Timothy Taylor presents weapons for Black against the hugely popular Spanish Opening, with a repertoire based on the Modern Steinitz Defence. This has justifiably earned a reputation as an important alternative to the main lines, and it's easy to see its appeal. The Modern Steinitz can lead to razor-sharp positions, such as in the Siesta Variation, where one slip by either player could prove to be fatal. But a major attraction of the Modern Steinitz is its flexibility, and Black can also choose to play in a more positional manner. Using illustrative games, Taylor studies in depth the critical main lines, and also what to do if White avoids these. Read this book and be ready to slay the Spanish!

  • Ideas for Black against the Ruy Lopez
  • Up-to-date theory on the sharpest lines
  • Covers plans and strategies for both sides.
