  keypusher: Very curious game...you sometimes see White castle queenside in the Ruy Lopez, but have you ever seen White and Black both do it?

  Phony Benoni: The Ruy Lopez is a big enough ocean for all sorts of strange creatures to swim around. For instance, both sides often castle queenside in lines of the Exchange Variation where the queens get traded early. And there are lines of the Schliemann/Janisch where anything can and does happen. See, for instance, Timman vs Speelman, 1989

Ciocaltea got optimistic with 24....Na5 and 25....Rc6.
