The Cozio Defence to the Spanish Game or Ruy Lopez with 3Nge7 is an excellent Black defence which is almost guaranteed to confuse White. It is currently very fashionable in and has good results. It was popular in the second half of the nineteenth century, being played by both Adolf Andersen and Wilhelm Steinitz, but was later overshadowed by the usual move 3...a6. In this book Alexey Dreev offers a full appraisal of the current state of the Cozio Defence, examining all major options for both sides from the starting position. In seven chapters he analyses 4.c3, 4.d4, 4.Nc3, White's rare 4th move options and both classical and modern lines after 4.00. Softback 212 pages. Dimensions: 14.5 x 1 x 21.5 cm
