Also known as the Spanish Opening, the Lopez is steeped in rich tradition, having provided the battleground for countless clashes between World Champions of past and present: Kasparov, Fischer, Karpov, Topalov, Kramnik, Anand - the list is endless! In "Play the Ruy Lopez", opening expert Andrew Greet provides the reader with a comprehensive repertoire for White, covering in detail every plausible response from Black after the opening moves 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bb5. This book is brimming with original ideas and analysis, and also includes extensive coverage of the typical tactics and strategies for both White and Black, thus arming the reader with enough knowledge to begin playing the Ruy Lopez with confidence in his or her own games. It is an an ultimate repertoire guide for White in the Ruy Lopez. It covers all of Black's typical defences. It is ideal for improvers, club players and tournament players.


The Ruy Lopez is an incredibly popular opening at all levels of chess; this is perhaps unsurprising given that it’s recognized by most experts as White’s greatest chance of obtaining a lasting advantage after the moves 1 e4 e5. Also known as the Spanish Opening, the Lopez is steeped in rich tradition, having provided the battleground for countless clashes between World Champions of past and present: Kasparov, Fischer, Karpov, Topalov, Kramnik, Anand – the list is endless!
Given its immense popularity, one issue a prospective Lopez player has to face up to is the mountain of theory that has gradually developed over the years. In this book, however, Andrew Greet circumvents this potential problem by advocating a comprehensive and yet concise repertoire for White, one that can be assimilated into an opening armoury with relative ease. He also covers thoroughly the typical tactical ideas and strategies for both White and Black, arming the reader with enough knowledge to begin playing the Ruy Lopez with confidence in his or her own games.

*Written by a Ruy Lopez expert
*All black defences are covered
*Ideal for improvers, as well as club and tournament players

Andrew Greet is a young International Master, a former British Junior Champion, and is one of the UK’s most rapidly improving players. In 2005 he scored a perfect 11/11 in the British National League, the first time any player had achieved this remarkable feat. He is also an experienced coach and writes regular articles for CHESS.

Format: Taschenbuch
Ich bin keine besonders routinierte Schachspielerin und wollte mir endlich mal die spanische Eroeffnung im Detail ansehen. Dazu habe ich dieses Buch gekauft und wurde positivst ueberrascht. Sehr uebersichtlich werden alle (die gelaeufigsten?) Varianten dargelegt. Gerade diese Uebersichtlichkeit und die detailierte Analyse auch schlechter oder unueberlicher Zuege, ist es was das Buch fuer mich so wertvoll machte. Zuerst werden Variationen ohne 3...a6 dargelegt, dann Variationen mit 3...a6 und in einem letzten ausfuehrlichem Kapitel wird auf das Worall System eingegangen (De2), das dem Autor sehr am Herzen liegen duerfte und das ich nun auch schon einmal erfolgreich ausprobieren konnte. Insgesamt ein sehr empfehlenswertes Buch fuer Leute wie mich, die sich ohne allzuviel Vorwissen mit dieser Eroeffnung detailiert auseinandersetzen moechten, aber wohl auch fuer erfahrenere Spieler interessant, da der Autor einige neue Wege empfiehlt.

Thorough Introduction to the Worral System 25. Januar 2007
Von A. Ali - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a meticulously researched and carefully written book on the Ruy Lopez whose repertoire recommendation is the Worral system (5.Qe2).130 pages are devoted to a comprehensive coverage of this line, giving not only variations but also explanations and ideas. The other 240 pages cover all the early deviations (Bird, Schliemann, Cozio, Berlin, Steinitz, and so on).

There is a plethora of opening books; this books stands out because of its eminent readability and careful explanations. It should be useful to all players from 1700 upwards (and including experts and masters).Excellent value for money.

Incredible Book 4. Februar 2008
Von SJA - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Hands-down the best opening repertoire book I have ever seen. Addresses all of the black responses to 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5, and proposes a line (the Worrall Attack) based on 5.Qe2 which avoids some of black's most obnoxious (e.g., the Marshall Attack) and problematic replies in the main line. Incredibly dense, yet a joy to read.

If you're looking something to play from the white side, do yourself a favor and buy this book.

A great writer and a much-needed book 14. Oktober 2007
Von bckm - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book because I have read several articles by the author in a chess magazine I subscribe to. He is an EXCELLENT writer; along with Jacob Aagaard, one of the best young writers out there (others are John Emms and the venerable John Nunn, Jeremy Silman, and John Watson). I play 1.e4 (this week, anyway...:) ) and have always struggled against 1...e5. I played stuff like the Bishop's Opening and the Urusov Gambit (1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 Nf6 3.d4), but Black rarely takes up the challenge and usually wimps out to transpose to the Two Knights Defense, which, sadly, is good enough against the early Bc4 lines.

I had been somewhat infatuated over the years with the odd-looking Worrall Attack, but couldn't find much information on it. Then, lo and behold, one of my favorite writers comes out and writes a book on it!

One of the many points in favor of this book is that Greet doesn't skimp on the "deviations" like the Schliemann, the Bird Defense, or any of the other stuff. He takes a certain move-order to reach the Worrall that cuts out one of Black's main alternatives, the Open Defense, and reaches the Worrall anyway. He devotes a significant chunk of the book on non-Worrall lines, because they will crop up. After all, the title is "Play the Ruy Lopez", not "Play the Worrall"...

I haven't dug in deeply to the variations yet (no time) but I can tell that the book is well-researched, well-written, and well-balanced, and I heartily encourage you to buy it. You won't be sorry.

And if you ARE sorry, you might want to buy an Eric Schiller book instead... <evil grin>

Perfect for players at least up to 2000 28. September 2009
Von Tom - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I was perusing the web recently and read a bad review of this book. In essence, the reviewer's beef was that playing the Worral (as well as some other not-quite-main lines like Qe2 vs the Berlin) was essentially a lazy cop out and that players should instead go in for Zaitsevs and Marshall attacks and that to play anything less was equivalent to a chess sin.

That's a bunch of bunk. I love opening theory, but I also have a job and certainly don't have time to keep up on the constantly developing theory of the Marshall, Berlin defense, etc. Yet I'm not satisfied with the positions I get playing the Scotch or Italian. If I don't like playing the white side of the open games other than the Spanish, and I don't have time to memorize reams of Marshall theory (and it is memorization in that opening, not understanding), how can I split the difference? Is there an opening that allows me to use the deep and flexible strategies of the closed Spanish while not having to spend hours a day on theory? There is! And what's more, some good players have played it, some fairly regularly (Rublevsky and most notably Tiviakov). It's the Worral.

Of course, the Worral attack can only be entered on move 5 (or 6), and black has a lot of options before that. Wouldn't it be great if a skillful, entertaining author not only gave us excellent and original analysis on the Worral but also provided excellent and original analysis on those early deviations? And wouldn't it be even better if those recommendations contained many of the same themes as OUR main line while also avoiding the most quickly developing theory? With lines that strong players play that aren't significantly weaker than the main lines (which are often mostly about fashion anyway)? That would be an incredible book, a monumental work that any author should be very proud to have produced.

It's called Play the Ruy Lopez.

Greet's recommendations are original, fit well with the Worral as a complete repertoire, and in most cases make it very hard for one's opponent to play on autopilot. For the non-professional player, it's the best possible selection of lines. Remember...your opponents play their systems every day. With so many systems at the black player's disposal, you probably won't get a lot of practice at any individual system and so you don't want to walk into someone's wheelhouse. Why go into a main line Berlin that your opponent has studied to death? Are you going to find some improvement on move 20 that Svidler missed? Maybe if you knew you'd be playing a Berlin player ahead of time and had access to GMs to help you figure out a novelty, like the pros do. But you don't have that, and neither do I, so playing an early Qe2 and having both players think for themselves in a position that you probably understand better than your opponent because it's YOUR system is a very good idea.

The only thing I don't like about his book is that it's presented in analysis tree format rather than complete games, which with an opening like the Lopez matters. It may well be that you reach a position from the book knowing it's supposed to be good but not knowing how to continue, because the Spanish is strategically complex and it's important to understand the middlegames. Other than that, I love this book and look forward to many great Worral games.

For the record, my USCF rating is currently 1899 and I've actually never lost a game in the Worral, though I haven't had the chance to play that many (a lot of Steinitz defenses and other early deviations). I like both this system and this book a great deal and recommend it highly.

This is a great book for white 27. März 2008
Von Carlos Guaimare - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book explain everything you need to know to play the spanish with the white pieces with confidence. It takes you thru all the deviations until you can play the Worral. Even if you do not play the worral the book is wondeful. It is a must for white players.
