Five years after the first edition, the book was completely rewritten and redesigned. While remaining true to the original structure, this new edition underwent major changes
This book presents an opening repertoire for Black to players who are looking for initiative and counterplay in the Ruy Lopez.
By playing 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.f3, White kills three birds with one shot.
This book presents a Black repertoire based on the QGA. The authors consider the Classical System with 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.e3 e6, but they also offer alternative approaches – building up tension with 4…Bg4, and the destructive 4…a6 aimed at quick equalisation.
