    Why is the Ruy Lopez the most popular chess opening ever played? Why do World Chess Champions love to play the Ruy Lopez? Why do chess trainers frequently recommend their students to play the Ruy Lopez? Because there does not exist a more versatile and dynamic chess opening (for both sides!). To achieve great success with the Ruy Lopez, you must deeply understand the fine balance between long-term positional maneuvers and immediate tactical combinations. This is why nearly World Chess Champion in the history of the game has frequently played the Ruy Lopez – the vastly important subtleties behind every move and plan! This is why chess trainers almost always recommend their rising students to play the Ruy Lopez – to develop a finely tuned intuition that senses the changing demands, both positional and tactical, of every move in every position. If you want to take your game to the next level, truly learning and grasping the concepts of the Ruy Lopez is a critical step in the process.


    I put great stake in the Ruy Lopez: I like it, feel it, and understand it¨ – 12th World Champion Anatoly Karpov
