John Emms, Tony Kosten & John Cox
Dangerous Weapons is a series of opening books which supply the reader with an abundance of hard-hitting, novel ideas to revitalize his or her opening repertoire.
In this book, three opening experts team up and take a contemporary look at the Ruy Lopez, one of the most popular chess openings. Instead of analysing the well-trodden main lines they concentrate on fresh or little-explored variations, selecting a wealth of dangerous options for both colours. In particular the Berlin Defence, Exchange Variation and d3 lines receive extensive coverage.
Whether playing White or Black, a study of this book will provide a wealth of new ideas to use against your unsuspecting opponents!
Grandmasters John Emms and Tony Kosten, and International Master John Cox are highly respected authors who are renowned for their creative opening ideas and expertise.
