Looking for some action against the Ruy Lopez? The Delayed Jaenisch, arising from the moves 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 f5, will be your choice from now on! Of course, Black could also go for the ‘normal’ Jaenisch with 3…f5, but the insertion of the move …a7-a6 proves to be quite useful in various lines. In 7 clips, all White’s logical options are examined, of which opening the centre with 5.d4 is obviously the most challenging. The ensuing positions are tactically rich and offer Black great chances to fight for the initiative, even though in certain lines the engines may disagree with our choice. In 2020 the line enjoyed a renaissance, and since then, many strong grandmasters have quickly gone wrong with White. So, your next opponent will not be the first victim of this tricky surprise weapon!
