1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 g6
In the fight for playable, unbalanced positions after 1.e4 e5, many top players (including World Champion Magnus Carlsen) turned to 3...g6 against the Ruy Lopez (2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5). Black aims for a kingside fianchetto combined, depending on White's reaction, with ...Nf6 or a quick ...f5. Play quickly goes outside normal Ruy Lopez patterns and often reaches positions more typical of a King's Indian, particularly when White closes the centre with d5. Black hopes that 1.e4 players will be less familiar with this territory, and the natural kingside attacking chances it offers the second player. In this DVD, Sam Collins explains the key ideas of 3...g6 and provides a complete repertoire for Black, suitable for regular use.
