after playing 1e4 e5 2Nf3, i dont like to play russian defence,so any other suggestions
Philidor Defence with d6 would be the main choice then.
Learn the Ruy. A weird line like the Bird's (3...Nd4) maybe, or just the main line Breyer or Tchigorin. When you don't fold after a dozen moves, you start to frustrate your opponent and then the fun begins.
That or the French Defense.
He was asking after e5 and nf3 though.
I always advocate learning that which really bugs you. Beat the devil at his own game. Nothing more satisfying.
I actually like the Ruy as black, around move 15-18 this looks quite promising IMO.
Like any chess opening, you have to be careful, but there are enough sharp lines that aren't what White was after on move 3, that you can take your pick and have fun:
The Classical (3...Bc5)
try out the Schliemann
Try the latvian with 2...f5.
if your scared don't play e5
1-learn some theory which is very solid
2-don't play 1...e5
3-play the philidor
Dont play e5. play sth like c5 or c6
Great aphorism. Indeed, you might have the only posts (so far) providing serious responses to the OP's question. He should be thanking you.
In the Ruy Lopez black has so many different approaches which leads to different kind of chess. No matter what your style is i think you
