Blitz chess (also known as speed or fast chess) is a type of chess in which each player is given less time to consider their moves than normal tournament time controls allow. Openings, tactics and strategy are same.

GM Ian Nepomniachtchi – GM Anton Guijarro David, Ruy Lopez, Blitz chess

At the most basic level, White’s third move attacks the knight which defends the e5-pawn from the attack by the f3-knight. White’s apparent threat to win Black’s e-pawn with 4.Bxc6 dxc6 5.Nxe5 is illusory—Black can respond with 5…Qd4, forking the knight and e4-pawn, which will win back the material with a good position. White’s 3.Bb5 is still a good move; it develops a piece, prepares castling, and sets up a potential pin against Black’s king. Since White’s third move carries no immediate threat, however, Black can respond in a wide variety of ways.

Traditionally, White’s objective in playing the Ruy Lopez is to spoil Black’s pawn structure; either way Black recaptures following the exchange on c6 will have negative features for him, though he thereby gains the bishop pair. In modern practice, however, White does not always exchange bishop for knight on c6, preferring the retreat 4.Ba4 if chased by 3…a6.

The theory of the Ruy Lopez is the most extensively developed of all Open Games, with some lines having been analysed well beyond move thirty. At nearly every move there are many reasonable alternatives, and most have been deeply explored. It is convenient to divide the possibilities into two groups based on whether or not Black responds with (3…a6), which is named the Morphy Defence after Paul Morphy, although he was not the originator of the line.The variations with Black moves other than 3…a6 are older and generally simpler, but the Morphy Defence lines are more commonly played.

  2. Once he won that knight earlier on he just relaxed and went for exchanges without much thought and lost. Have done it myself . . . .

  3. Ian estava com vontade de cagar… Por isso vazou

  4. Que bien niño Anton gran partida dejando en grande a los hispanohablantes!!!

  5. Muy bien niño Antón. Ya estás en la élite.

  6. Ian made an ilegal move. He promoted to Queen but with rook upside down. He should have stopped the clock and get the Queen.

  7. Casi empata el de las piezas blancas 🧐

  8. Ian no es tan bueno en Blitz , bueno , no se compara a los mejores, no es su ritmo más fuerte … Pero en clásicas es posiblemente un buen contendiente contra Magnus .

  9. a strong chess game, but I wanted Jan to win

  10. Es curioso que Anton le gano al gran ruso y cuando vino a buenos aires a jugar un abierto blitz, termino lejos de los primeros puestos, tal vez 8vo.

  11. La clave estuvo en 4:42 Cc6. Si hasta el cosmos le puso efecto de sonido de la película Tiburón.

  12. Ian reclamaba porque Karpov hizo un enroque con las dos manos, mira como será de quisquilloso, pero él es más pillo colocando una torre dada vuelta… igual el niño Antón le voló la raja.

  13. LOL Nepo offered a draw in a completly loosing position, strange that even such strong GMs do that…

  14. 1:45 what's going on in 1st board? I see a5 a4 and maybe e5 for black at the first three moves! 😃

  15. Que bien que ganó Antón. Que mala vibra muestra Nepo, todo prepotente.

  16. Ха-ха наказал..порвал

  17. Can someone explain what happened @8:04 , when the guy in red moved his queen up the file but then made a left turn and took the other guys queen?

  18. Непомнящий задавака и хвастун…

  19. Qué crack el niño Antón, muy fino en el final.
