Ruy Lopez Classical

Get ready to play in a chess tournament this weekend.

Here's a little video to help you get your engine started. (-or to just learn a little more about the game.)

The Ruy Lopez (Spanish Game) starts with the White Bishop to b5. This video introduces the Classical Defense where Black responds with his Bishop to c5. I'm not sure why I've seen this so rarely over the years. It seems solid and has good success in master play.
