  tpstar: So in the Ruy Lopez Open after the old 9. Nc3!?, Steinitz likes 9 ... Be7 while Tarrasch prefers 9 ... Ne7 aiming for 10 ... c5, which seems more active. After establishing the b5/c4/d5 Pawn triangle, White's Bishop gets locked out of the game and later lost. Note 18. Nxb5 Qa5 19. Nd6 Qxc3 or 19. Qb1 Nf3+ & 20 ... Nxe5. The game concludes with a cute Family Fork.
