Learn from the best!

In a total of three volumes, Caruana examines all Black replies after 1.e4 e5 2.♘f3 ♞c6 3.♗b5. The world’s number two not only shows very concrete lines, but also outlines general approaches depending on the demands of each variation.

How can White keep track of the manifold solid closed set-ups (e.g. the Breyer)? What’s the best way to defuse the risky Schliemann-Jaenisch Gambit? Which transitions to the endgame against the Open Variation are particularly unpleasant for Black? What are the guiding threads to follow against the Berlin Defence?


The new-look FritzTrainer design is now also available for Mac as a digital download!

Runs on Macs and PCs alike!


In short, this trilogy not only provides the viewer with a complete premium Ruy Lopez repertoire, but also with fascinating insights into the mindset and chess understanding of a World Championship contender. Epiphanies guaranteed!

Turns out this set was too advanced for a club player player like me.
Very fast paced, and makes a lot of assumptions about what you already know.
But for those who are advanced players, there is a ton of information.
