  tpstar: For the Ruy Lopez Open, 6. d4 b5 7. d5!?, this is the only game in the database where Black survives. Therefore 7 ... bxa4 8. dxc6 d6 9. Re1 Nf6 & castling soon must be best play for Black. I liked 13 ... a3! wrecking White's Pawns, also 16 ... e4! heading straight for the Pawn-up endgame. P.S. Does this variation have a name?

Jul-21-08  Zickzack: According, to Richter, Black's 9. ... Nf6 is the only move. However, Fritz10 gives a better game for Black after 9. ... f5.

Here's a game in 30 I played as black at my club against an 1850 player 300 points higher than I am.
