Krzysztof Panczyk & Jacek Ilczuk

Analysis and 74 annotated, illustrative games in the exchange Lopez (1.e4, e5; 2.Nf3, Nc6; 3.Bb5, a6; 4.Bxc6,).

The Ruy Lopez Exchange (or Spanish Exchange) is a classical and well-respected opening that is a favourite amongst Grandmasters and club players alike. It has provided the battle scene for many heavyweight clashes between the world's elite, including (amongst others) Alexei Shirov, Jan Timman, Nigel Short and Michael Adams. Very early on in the game, a distinctive pawn structure is obtained, and in this particular opening it's the understanding of key ideas, plans and structures that's more important that the memorisation of long theoretical variations.

In this book, noted opening theoreticians Krzysztof Panczyk and Jacek Ilczuk explain the crucial strategies and tactics of the Ruy Lopez Exchange. Using model games for both White and Black, the authors provide a thorough schooling in the key ideas of both the fashionable lines and the more offbeat variations. In this way, players of all standards can quickly and confidently begin to play the Ruy Lopez Exchange with either colour in their own games.

* An opening originally championed by the great Bobby Fischer
* Ideal for club and tournament players
* Provides everything you need to know to start playing the opening straight away

A well laid out book with chapter summaries and indexes of variations. The Exchange Lopez is an ideal weapon for White players wanting a small but clear advantage from the opening.

Published 2005, softback, 192 pages.
