GM Ian Nepomniachtchi – GM Dmitry Jakovenko, Blitz chess, Ruy Lopez

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.[4] 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.[5] The variations with Black moves other than 3…a6 are older and generally simpler, but the Morphy Defence lines are more commonly played.

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.


  1. удивительно, но почему-то большинство таких абсолютно ничейных (причём тремя разными способами почти каждый ход) позиций умудряются проигрываться в практических партиях.

  2. Давайте пожалуйста больше видео с Артемьевым

  3. beautiful zugzwang at 10:19 after Kf7….. if black rook moves in the file then white captures the pawn with the king, otherwise if the rook moves in the column white captures the pawn with the rook without losing the g pawn…..and if Kh8, Rh6#

  4. My God…just a simple move…
