Ruy Lopez Berlin Defense [C65]
By Abby Marshall
I am covering a line that has been played a few times against me when I play the Classical Defense as Black in the Ruy Lopez.
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5
The Ruy Lopez or Spanish Game.
This is a major alternative to the main move, 3...a6. I always played it with the intention of following up with 4...Bc5, the Classical Defense. Black gets active pieces though has to watch for White targeting these pieces with c3 and d4.
