Ruy Lopez {9..Nd7}
Compiled by Open Defence
--*--

These games show play after the position reached (in some games this is by a different move order) 1. e4 e5 2. ♘f3 ♘c6 3. ♗b5 a6 4. ♗a4 ♘f6 5. O-O ♗e7 6. ♖e1 b5 7. ♗b3 d6 8. c3 O-O 9. h3 ♘d7 10. d4 ♘a5 11. ♗c2 c5 12. dxe5 dxe5 13. ♘bd2 ♗b7 While improvements for White are seen as the days go by, I think that this position merits more analysis as there seem to be a number of promising continuations for Black.

These games are very instructive for players who like to defend against the Ruy Lopez.
