I think annotated GM games are the way to go.  If you study Keres, Fischer, and Karpov in roughly that order, you can't go too far wrong. 


Why this order in particular? Just a bit curious.

I decided database + engine is the way to go.  Anyway, the league season is over so plenty of time for study now...

You do appear to have hit upon the main sources (at least the ones I'm aware of). A google search turns up a book by Bikhovsky from 1983 - perhaps this is relevant regarding strategic understanding of the variations, although admittedly I know nothing about it.

Presumably of some value would also by White repertoire books (.e.g. Emms' Easy Guide, Khalifman, etc.)

I've recently became interested in this variation from black's point of view:

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 Be7 6.Re1 b5 7.Bb3 d6 8.c3 0-0 9.h3 Na5 10.Bc2 c5 11.d4 Qc7

...and was trying to investigate sources, particularly with 12.Nbd2 cxd4 variations.

New in Chess Yearbooks seem fascinated with 11...Nd7 but not Qc7, which means the most recent resources are:

1) Chesspublishing (of course) but I'm not a subscriber to 1.e4 e5 (at the moment...)
2) Marin's Spanish book, which I have, but that covers only 12.Nbd2 Nc6 and 12.Nbd2 Bd7 (latest NiC YB covers this based on So-Carlsen I think?)
3) Flear's Main Line Ruy Lopez book, which is older than some IMs these days Shocked but presumbly gives a good overview.
4) Whatever random overpriced Chessbase DVDs exist (I'm not really interested in this unless there is a particularly good one I don't know)

So are there any other resources (even older but good ones?), or is it just time to grab a Chesspub subscription, database and engine and work on my own?  I'm willing to investigate some old books by e.g. Keres, Geller etc if there is a particular recommendation.
