Get ready to add a powerful opening to your repertoire, win more games as White and deepen your chess understanding with this Saturday's webinar.
The Ruy Lopez, also known as the Spanish Opening, is the oldest recorded chess opening, first appearing in Libro del Ajedrez (Book of Chess) in 1561! Since then it has been used regularly by every world champion and is often one of the first openings beginners learn.
Mastering it, however, takes a lot longer.
On Saturday 25 June, I will present a 1 hour webinar teaching you some of the more advanced ideas of this classic opening - free and exclusive to all my YouTube followers.
The Ruy Lopez is one of two openings that is considered essential to the development of any promising player (the other being the Sicilian Defense). Its strategic nature, typical tactics plus the fact it leads to both open and closed positions make it perfect for deepening general chess understanding.
So important is the Ruy Lopez to your chess education it's believed it prevented one player from becoming World Champion. The great Lev Polugaevsky, who competed at the very highest level during the '60s and '70s, was a fantastic Sicilian player but his neglect of the Ruy meant he lacked the deep strategic understanding of the likes of Karpov and Korchnoi, the latter player being able to beat him twice in the Candidates.
With the lessons you learn in this free 1-hour webinar you'll not only add a formidable weapon to your repertoire but also pick up a new layer of chess understanding which will serve you well for years to come.
