The Ruy Lopez RevisitedWe have just received from our printers: The Ruy Lopez Revisited. In this ground-breaking book, one of today's greatest Ruy Lopez experts, Ivan Sokolov, presents a practical opening guide with a wide repertoire for black players who want to play for a win.

The Ruy Lopez Revisited contains in-depth but highly accessible analysis of the Jaenisch Gambit, the Delayed Jaenisch, the Cozio Variation, the Smyslov Variation, the Bird Variation and the Classical Variation. The lines Sokolov presents are always dynamic and sometimes quite offbeat. But he has played most of them himself on numerous occasions, even against the strongest opponents.

Written in an accessible down-to-earth style, which we know from the bestseller Winning Chess Middlegames, Sokolov shows us numerous improvements for Black, as well as some crushing novelties for White!

Please have a look at these offbeat weapons & unexplored resources.
