Spanish Exchange Variation A Fischer Favorite - White Repertoire for Tournament Players
The Spanish Exchange Variation lets you play one of the major chess openings, the Ruy Lopez, without the risk of drowning in the huge flow of information now available to the modern chess-player. White's play in this opening is often very thematic, thus an understanding of the typical positions is more important than concrete knowledge of variations.
Traps lurk in every stage of a chess game, but they occur especially often in the opening. In this instructional volume, the two internationally recognized masters of the game cover the traps that can be expected after the double advance of the white d-pawn. For every possible opening after 1.d4. including the Queen's Gambit or the King's Indian Defense - there are explanatory texts detailing the most typical trap motifs.
