    Now, with no attack to show for it, white will lose a rook.

    See, the problem is, nobody would play 2... b6. Most would play 2... d5.

    this is actually an opening named Ruy Lopez

    and black isn't forced to play a6. he can try Nf6, Berlin Defense, or Bc5 ,Classical Defense, with an even game...

     I know i am 250 pts lower rated than you but...

    Of course 3. ... a6 is not forced, but it is one of the best ways for Black against Ruy Lopez, and after 9.h3 Black has good ways like 9. ... Na5, 9. ... Nb8 and more (I also like 9. ... h6).

    The problem with the position in post #148 is that it's only equal. I've got a bunch of games in my database where the two sides agreed to the draw almost instantly due to the perpetual:

    This is true, white can force a draw...but theres a reasonw hy that usually doesnt happen:

    People who are weak will think they are winning...thats why they saced the piece... so they wont force the draw. Then they eventually lose.

    heres something else i also see quite often...usually it seems like the most effective traps happen when the other guy is trying to kill you...people in an aggresive mindset always forget that you can do things.

    Even when black plays correctly, it's an awfully vicious attack to defend.

    1...d5 is the usual response to 1.f4.  I don't know whether players just automatically play symmetrically, or they think it's an English for a moment, or what.
