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.

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 playersAndrew 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.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

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.
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.
