First published in 1987. The Ruy Lopez is the most enduring and popular of openings. It was a favourite with Steinitz, Lasker, Capablanca, Alekhine, Tal, Spassky, Fischer, Karpov and Kasparov. The Lopez is the ultimate Grandmaster opening. It is also one of the most difficult to learn how to play well. In this treatise International Master Shaun Taulbut guides readers through the right paths and shows how to make this formidable opening a regular point-scorer in their own games.

Shaun Taulbut won team gold in the World Students' Championship, was European junior champion and holds the title of International Master awarded by the World Chess Federation.
