This week we continue our series on the Ruy Lopez, and we're close to wrapping up the section on the Open Ruy. Having finished with 9.Qe2, 9.Be3 and 9.Nbd2 it's time for 9.c3, and this time around I take a look at the very sharp lines with 9...Bc5. This is some very entertaining theory, so even those of you who wouldn't touch either side of the Open Ruy with a proverbial 10-foot pole might still find the show enjoyable.
Have a look here and see for yourself. The show is free, as always (free one-time only registration required), and will be available on-demand for the next month or so.
