    1. e4 e5
    2. Nf3 Nc6
    3. Bb5 a6
    4. Ba4 Nf6
    5. 0-0 Nxe4

    thats the book for the open lopez

    6. d4 is book for white, black should follow 6...b5

    DONT TAKE ON d4! lol

    6...exd4!? is complicated and black can easily go wrong

    6...Nxd4??
    7. NxN exN
    8. Re1 and there is no way for black to save the other knight, or the game, after 9. f3

    more when i can think of it lol, i'm no expert, i play the white side lol and all my games are blitz wit the lopez

    good luck!

    well if you know your stuff i'd just learn the marshall, its very nice against people who dont know their theory, and black gets an alright game afterword even if they do.

    any lopez defense is fine as long as you know what you're doing. of the other defenses i like the archangel the best but i'm not too familiar with the black side of the lopez as i never play 1...e5 and rarely play as white so i rarely play lopezes
