  • 1. e4 e5 2. Ng1f3 Nb8c6 3. Bf1b5 Ng8f6
    Ryu Lopez / Spanish Opening, Berlin Wall defense.
    • 4. O-O Bf8d6
      ? Passive, as it blocks the d-pawn and thus the queen's bishop. Opening theory suggests Nxe4 or Bc5.
      • 5. d3 b6 6. Bb5xc6
        The queen's bishop could've had a nice diagonal through b7, so I took a step to prevent that.
        • 6... dxc6 7. h3
          A weak move, only blocking Bg4. Bg5, b3, Nc3 or Re1 would've been natural moves here.
          • 7... c5
            ok, but limits the mobility of the king's bishop. With the d-pawn missing it will take a bit of work to get past the pawn at e4, such as Nd7 and then f5. How aobut O-O or Bb7 ?
            • 8. Nb1d2
              The idea was to go for the pawn at e5 by doing b3, Bb2, and Nc4. It's easy enough to block, though, with O-O, Re8, and Nd7.
              • 8... b5
                ?! Prevents Nc4, but the queen's side pawns become more difficult to defend.
                • 9. b3
                  Preparing to fight for the c4 square, and bringing the bishop to play.
                  • 9... O-O 10. Bc1b2 c4
                    ? Loses two pawns for one after bxc4 bxc4 Nxc4, allows the white knight to enter play, isolates the c7 pawn and enables white to attack the e5 pawn.
                    • 11. bxc4 Bc8b7
                      ? Loses another pawn.
