  1. In the Ruy Lopez opening, white aims to control the center of the board and prepare for kingside castling. Typically, the opening moves for Ruy Lopez are:1. *e4 e5*2. *Nf3 Nc6*3. *Bb5*By playing Bb5, white attacks the knight on c6 and indirectly exerts pressure on the e5 pawn, which can lead to various lines and strategies. It's a classical opening that can lead to a wide range of positions and plans, making it popular among chess players at all levels.

  2. Roy Lopez is very cool I play it all the time , not much theory ,simple and fun.

  4. Sir you should demonstrate it by moving the piesces not everyone memorize the notation of a chess board

  5. Honestly speaking i don't recommend this opening to everyone yeah it's really affective but if only you know what you're doing which in 60% of the times players don't know what they are doing and they can get hit by several moves that can cost the game

  6. I just played a game on LiChess and found how to do this. I think e4, e5, nf3, nc6, bb5, a6, trade bishop and knight, then take on e4. Black now has doubled up pawns, is one pawn down and we can castle and they cant.
