Get a top class Ruy Lopez repertoire! In his three Fritztrainers, Fabiano Caruana examines all of Black's responses to 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5. Caruana combines concrete variations with a general approach. How do you keep an overview in the many lines of the closed variations? What is the best way to neutralise the double-edged Jaenisch Gambit? Which transitions into the endgame are particularly unpleasant for Black in the Open Variation? And much more.
