How to play the Ruy Lopez with Qe2

To avoid theory battles in well-known lines against Ruy Lopez (Berlin, Open Variation or the Marshall Attack), Sergey Tiviakov invites you into the world of an extraordinary early queen move for White: Qe2 – elegant, effective and easy to learn!

The following variations are covered on the DVD: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6 4.Qe2, 3...a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.Qe2 and 5.0-0 Be7 6.Qe2 (Worral Attack). Sergey Tiviakov himself has employed his pet line, the development of the white queen to e2, since the age of 6 – this means 40 y ears of experience, transferred into 5 hours of video! The DVD is based mostly on Tiviakov’s own games and his life-long experience with Qe2 in the Ruy Lopez. Studying the rich material, you will be able to lead your opponent into unknown territory for him, with good chances to score just as successfully as the author himself!
