There is no doubt that 1...e5 is one of Black’s most reliable and yet aggressive ways of meeting 1 e4. It’s also true that some Black players are put off by the seemingly endless number of variations. However, here Nigel Davies provides a complete answer to this perennial problem by offering a concise and practical repertoire for the Black player, whilst crucially including a dependable defence to the Ruy Lopez – White’s most popular attacking try. Davies is the perfect choice for this subject, having been battle-hardened by years of international competition in these openings.
*A complete defence to 1 e4
*All of White’s tries are covered
*Includes White’s main weapon, the Ruy Lopez
