"This is a fantastic book, just as 'Bologan's Black Weapons' was. A complete repertoire full of surprising ideas. With these two book in your library you own the 1.e4 e5-bible, so to speak. Everything you need to know is there. You can put a lot of your old books up for sale on Ebay." -- Richard Vedder, Fide Master Schakers.info "Bologan is a great author." -- Jacob Aagaard "It may be a good tip for Magnus to read 'Bologan's Ruy Lopez for Black.' If he had done so, he might have played his game against Anish Giri in the London Chess Classic 2015 a little more inspired." -- Simen Agdestein, Grandmaster, six-time Norwegian Chamion and former trainer of Magnus Carlsen "The astute player now has a short cut to success against the Ruy Lopez." -- Gary Lane, International Master Chess Moves Magazine
