I'm new to this site and have and would really appreciate some opinions regarding a certain line in the Ruy Lopez Modern Steinitz Defense. I'm rated about 1500 and am working to improve my Ruy Lopez games when playing white.
My question is: After the moves
5. ? what would be the best continuation: I like Bxc6+ but what are the strengths and weaknesses to this move? Also, any ideas on the following lines would be most helpful.
5.Bxc6+ (I'm particularly interested in opinions regarding this line...is it a "bad" move? Why or why not?)
