1.e4 e5 Beating Italian and Ruy Lopez with Black

Capablanca, Karpov and even the champion himself, Magnus Carlsen — all of them have relied upon 1…e5 as a key weapon to completely neutralize the aggressive intentions of 1.e4 players.

Even blood-thirsty attackers like Kasparov and Tal have been abruptly stopped in their tracks by a skilfully played 1…e5 defense.

In a previous Deep Dive, we took care of the Gambits and Secondary Lines, now it’s time to face the real openings like the Italian Game and the Ruy Lopez!

As our opposition increases their level, it’s more probable that we will end up facing good players of the Italian and Ruy Lopez Openings, so we must be ready to face all the possibilities our rival may play.

GM Lemos will show us his personal selection of lines for a solid approach while keeping Black’s winning chances alive.
