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?

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!
