Igor Lysyj & Roman Ovetchkin

Contents page (pdf)

Igor Lysyj's introduction:
The overwhelming majority of the world’s theoretical experts consider that in reply to 1.e2-e4 there are really only two good moves. Since the sharp Sicilian positions might turn my hair prematurely grey, I decided to study the calmer move 1...e5.

I managed to study the new positions quickly and easily and I felt quite comfortable with them in practice. By the summer of 2011 I was already playing nothing but 1...e5 and had no opening problems with Black, either in the Finals of the Championship of Russia or in the World Cup.

In this book I have presented all my analyses and my discoveries during the World Cup. 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.

Igor Lysyj is an International Grandmaster and participated in the Russian team which won the World Students' Championships on 2008. Roman Ovetchkin is an International Grandmaster, an experienced coach and trainer and winner of several international tournaments.

Published 2012, softback, 244 pages.
