The third day we consider the Ruy Lopez in chess books. We know the Ruy Lopez 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 as an opening full of possibilities. Most of the pieces remain in action for a long time in this well established opening. For over 100 years the top players in the world happily play either side in the hope to win.
