Attacking the SpanishQuality Chess has just published Attacking the Spanish. IM Sabino Brunello shows that there is no reason for Black to start defending immediately, a reflex many players have when confronted with the Ruy Lopez.

Brunello presents the latest developments in three Anti-Spanish gambits, all recently tested by top-10 players, in which Black engages in a tense fight for the win, right from the start. First in line is the Schliemann, with its reversed King's Gambit flair, often played on club level. Grandmasters thought of at it as unsound, untill Teimour Radjabov started playing it succesfully and sparked a revival.

The Gajewski is a fascinating gambit, invented in the 2007 by Polish GM Gajewski in a position that had been reached a thousand times before. And last but not least, favoured by the world's best, is the sound and aggressive Marshall Attack. Here you will find a an expert guide.

In short: this is a book for those who love to have the initiative.
