Ruy Lopez 6.c4 Saric Win by Pin

Don't overlook a simple move in the midst of complications. Masters love the Ruy Lopez because of its complex strategical and tactical play. Most of the pieces remain active in battle deep into the middlegame. You can always play for a win. Pattern recognition, calculation ability, and accurate evaluation all play a major role in the final result. Ivan Saric won against WGM Nino Batsiashvili after she delayed her bishop development.
