Book DescriptionMany players would like to play the main lines of the Ruy Lopez with Black, but fear answering 1 .e4 with 1...e5 because of White's great variety of deviations. In this book, acclaimed author Mihail Marin presents a repertoire for Black against the Open Games, including the Italian Game, Evans Gambit, Scotch, Vienna, Spanish Exchange Variation, Spanish and Scotch Four Knights, Bishop's Opening, Centre Game, Ponziani, and not least, the notorious King's Gambit.

In this book Marin reveals his own opening repertoire, which he prepared for high-level international competition. But besides giving concrete answers to any worries players might have about facing the Open Games, Marin uses his renowned writing skills to lucidly convey the main strategic ideas. This way Marin has succeeded in writing a middlegame book, disguised as an opening book.

No one can read this book without being entertained and educated at the same time.
