Yes, people. I tell you straight and true; Ruy Lopez is REFUTED after 3...a6??
Watch and learn... Fritz, Stockfish, Rybka and Houdini all confirm my theory...
Grandmasters have been doing it wrong for years.
HUMAN EYES ARE NOT ABLE TO PROCESS THIS NUMBER OF QUESTION AND EXCLAMATION MARKS
Quite a lot of !! and ?? for such a hard to win position.
Why would black play 8. Kd8?
*sigh* another wannabe .....
Let us know as soon as you beat Anand, Kramnik and Carlsen with your wonderful TN.
I will be less mean than the others. Did you forget about another imbalance? It's a big one, look at the minor pieces.
i.e. black has a bishop pair.
Even if not, creating a small positional advantage with white would hardly be revolutionary. And your king is out meaning black can probably develop with tempo i.e. queenside castle.
actually this just leads to a simple endgame with drawish chances unless someone blunders. Thats why no one has played it. also try to find best moves for black, of course he is losing if he blunders :)
I was going to reply to this with something cleverly disrespectful an then decided it wasnt worth it...;)
Why is this thread not closed?
If I recall correctly, Black is supposed to play 5... Qg5, not 5 .... Qd5, and win the pawn on g2. That may take all the fun out of the line.
This is a very bad troll thread. Wikipedia only posts the 5...Qd5 line, saying "the win of the e-pawn for White is illusionary; Black can play 5...Qd5!" or something along those lines. However, Qg5 forces the win of two pawns(after the rook moves it's no longer defending the h-pawn) so it looks like that's better.
Developous, some tips for you. When you're trolling, your lies must be outrageous, but, after glancing quickly at it, looks like it just MAY OR MAY NOT be true. And it's not very good if your lies can be corrobated(anyone with any of those engines you mentioned can quickly punch in your TN and realize that White is lost).
