Ruy Lopez Berlin Forcing Moves

Tension mounts. Both sides attack a piece. Both sides threaten a check. Who wins? The one who forced a combination. Weaker players wait for weaker opponents to blunder. Stronger players force the tactical action. White began quietly in this Ruy Lopez Berlin with 4.d3, but soon the fireworks came raining down. In the game Alan Pichot vs David Martinez Martin, White won a pawn to drive the Black king out into the open.
