Ruy Lopez: Attack With the Schliemann
An Interactive Training Video on the Jaenisch Gambit
by Sam Collins
Publisher: ChessBase, 2015
Video running time: 3 hours 48 minutes
The Schliemann (or Jaenisch) Gambit, 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 f5, languished in semi-obscurity before top GM Teimour Radjabov revolutionised the opening with new ideas, defending his analysis with excellent results in Linares and elsewhere against the world’s best players.
Black plays actively and aggressively from move 3, frequently sacrificing a pawn for open lines, kingside activity and the bishop pair.
In this DVD Sam Collins provides a complete and detailed repertoire for Black.
Numerous novelties and improvements are suggested, with the conclusion that White has no clear route to an opening advantage.
Refresh your repertoire and avoid the Spanish Torture with 3…f5!
