GM Ovethckin and GM Lysyj use illustrative games to teach us the finer points of the critical Berlin Defence so we are ready and able to challenge the Ruy Lopez.

Together with their collaboration on The Open Games for Black , we have a complete Repertoire for Black after 1.e4 e5. Serious 1.e4 players better take a look at these books so they do not get caught off guard!

Both of these volumes are thorough enough for the expert player, and offer the clear explanations of the plans in the target positions sought after by the improving chess enthusiast.

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6 (Black Repertoire)

From the Preface (Lysyy):
I worked hard at mastering 1...e5 for Black and the results were very fruitful in the 2011 World Cup, where I had no problems at all after 1.e4. I was especially happy with the outcome of the opening battle against the outstanding theoretician M. Kobalia. In fact, in one of the main tabias of the anti-Berlin system I found an order of moves which I believe to be among my best analytical achievements.
