Ruy Lopez Theoretical Novelty

Ruy Lopez theory extends deep into the game. Not everything is tried or even known. New ideas crop up as computers examine positions by the millions. In the game Yasser Quesada Perez vs Yusnel Bacallao Alonso, White found a sudden win.

Quesada Perez (2552) - Bacallao Alonso (2605), 55th ch-CUB Absoluto 2018 Havana CUB (6.1), 07.02.2018 begins 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.d4 exd4 6.0-0 Be7 7.Re1 0-0 [7...b5=] 8.e5 Ne8 9.c3 dxc3 10.Nxc3 d6 11.exd6 Nxd6 12.Nd5 b5 [The bishop on e7 is vulnerable.
