The Ruy Lopez – GM Damian Lemos
Every World Champion played it. AlphaZero rediscovered it and quickly made it its favorite e4 opening.
Named nearly 500 years ago by a Spanish priest, the Ruy Lopez is THE classical chess opening.
If you don’t study it, you might never hit your true chess potential.
Mikhail Botvinnik claimed that the only reason the great Polugaevsky never challenged for the World Championship was because he didn’t play the Ruy Lopez, and so didn’t master positional play.
Due to the extension of the theory, this work focuses on all the lines after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 and black doesn’t play 3…a6. Lines with 3…a6 will be covered in Part 2, coming later.
Over 7 hours of training with Damian will redefine your Spanish Opening repertoire and will get you ready to play for an advantage against all kinds of rivals.
