  tpstar: In the 3 ... de French, White should limit exchanges allowing Black to equalize and get ... c5 in. Yet this line trading off the QN & QB for both Knights works great after 10. 0-0-0 0-0 since White's attack is much faster, plus those Knights aren't around to defend. Rh3 is a useful Rook lift, sliding along the third rank while avoiding problems on the long diagonal. White probably can't avoid consolidating with c3 & Kb1 to prevent counterplay.

I assume you are an e4 player? If so, what line do you find yourself playing against the most?

I find myself in the ruy-lopez many a time. And one of my favourite lines goes as follows as white:

e4 e5
nf3 nc6
bb5 a6
bxc6 dxc6
d4 exd4
qxd4 qxd4

Now while most people conisder this "weak fo white", or at best a draw, I think people think to much at the top level, and we have not too many people playing at 25oo+ preformance at this site...

Anyways, at my level, say 1900-2000, I find myself playing ver well with this line, it seems to work well, especially if white can manage to take off one of the black bishops, which seems like the major compensation for the white KS majority.

Aug-19-05  Giancarlo: In the above game, I like 12.Kb1. A move that suggest white is waiting to see the course of action balck will take before deciding on his own.
