In this DVD, the viewer is invited to solve over 60 puzzles in Chessbase’s new interactive Question & Answer format. All positions are from the Ruy Lopez and have been carefully selected to illustrate the most important recurring tactical themes throughout this opening, one of the most important in modern chess. Starting with Black’s alternatives on move 3 and working through until the main lines of the Closed Lopez and the Marshall and Anti-Marshall, the viewer will find his knowledge of the opening developing in tandem with an improvement in his tactical ability. The puzzles range in difficulty from straightforward tactics and opening traps to intricate combinations even grandmasters will struggle to solve.
