Former US Open Champion Timothy Taylor presents a repertoire for Black against the universally popular Spanish Opening (Ruy Lopez). The backbone of Black’s repertoire is based on the Modern Steinitz Defence, which has justifiably earned a reputation as an important alternative to the main lines.

The Modern Steinitz may lead to razor-sharp gambits, such as the Siesta Variation, where just one slip by either player could prove to be fatal. But perhaps the main attraction of the Modern Steinitz is its flexibility, as Black can also choose to play in a more positional and solid manner.

Using illustrative games and drawing on his own experiences with the opening, Taylor examines in depth all the critical main lines, as well as what to do if White avoids them. Read this book and get ready to slay the Spanish!

• A repertoire for Black against the Ruy Lopez
• Up-to-date theory on the critical lines
• Covers plans and strategies for both sides.

International Master Timothy Taylor is an experienced tournament player who has enjoyed several notable successes. He is an accomplished chess writer who is renowned for his entertaining thought-provoking style.
