Deciding what to play against the Spanish Game (classically known as the Ruy Lopez) is a perennial problem for those who play 'open games' as Black. It's all too easy to play too passively and end up having to face what is known as the 'Spanish Torture'. In this book Grandmaster Glenn Flear studies a wide variety of ambitious and offbeat answers for many different playing styles. From the super-solid Berlin to the uncompromising Schliemann, there is enough choice here for any prospective black player facing the Spanish. On the other hand, this book is also perfect for Spanish enthusiasts looking for the best way to deal with those avoiding the main lines. (6 1/4 x 9 1/4, 144 pages, diagrams)
