Mar-11-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: The interesting fact about that opening line in Ruy Lopez is, that it is strictly a theory up to 20th move - there is 28 other games in database with the same first 20 moves!

Even more fascinating is, that this particular (popular?) opening line contains no captures for the whole 20-moves-sequence!

In the game above the old Hungarian punishes Timman's trial to promote the lone d-pawn severely.

  Breunor: Going through Stockfish analysis, after 31 ... Bc8 it still lists white as more than .6 ahead, and lists Rc6 as where's best; but the running Stockfish after 32 Rc6 the lead is listed as about .18.

But it does look like according to the computer 33 d6 was the losing move, to - 1.5. Qxc5 is listed as even.

Boy, I thought white looked after d6, for my parser games it looks like black is under a lot of pressure.
