Product Description
 
The Open Games for Black - Igor Lysyj and Roman Ovetchkin
A complete Black repertoire with 1.e4 e5 against everything except the Ruy Lopez
244 pages, Paperback
"My main opening weapon throughout my chess career, from 1998 to 2010, was the French Defence. However, in the last five years of this period I played a large number of games in the strongest tournaments in Russia, mostly against players rated over 2600, and I suffered many humiliating but well-deserved defeats.
These losses made me reconsider the situation and I came to the conclusion that the cramped positions in the French Defence are strategically risky and do not quite suit my playing style... In this book I have presented all my analyses and my discoveries during the World Cup 2011. I believe that it will be useful for chess players at all levels to study them, together with the excellent annotations and explanations of Roman Ovetchkin.
The reader might justifiably pose the following question: "How to cope with the Ruy Lopez if you are Black?". In fact, almost every variation of this opening deserves to be analyzed in a separate volume, so we shall reveal to you the tremendously complicated and fashionable Berlin Defence in our next book." (from the Preface)
