Winning with the Ruy Lopez: Vol 2: Steinitz, Anti-Marshall, Open & Co - Viktor Bologan
Running Time: 5 hours and 20 minutes
On his second Ruy Lopez DVD Viktor Bologan shows how things continue after 3...a6 4.Ba4. Black has some possible deviations before we reach the main lines which are dealt with in Part 3. These include the solid Steinitz Defence and the Archangelsk Variation which has again been brought up to date. In the Open Ruy Lopez quite different types of positions are reached - and White need to understand these too. And our author prefers to avoid the Marshall Attack â so he suggests the Anti-Marshall beginning with 8.h3.
