Ruy Lopez Cozio

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.)

This time Black's King Knight goes to e7, blocking the Bishop, so it has to go to g7, after the pawn moves to g6. The knight has the advantage of covering the Queen Knight on c6, while also preparing for eventual pawn advances to f5 and d5. Black may also consider castling queenside instead of his usual kingside fortress.
