I think it might be a Ruy Lopez variation?? Anybody know the name??
Ruy Lopez, I think.
http://www.chess.com/explorer/ will tell you these kinds of things, this position for example is listed as:
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6
yeah, but whats the variation in the brackets??? Sorry I put them in brackets, but I son''t know how to delete moves
oh ok, thanks so much!!
As far as I know, 3.d3 doesn't have a name. If white continues with g3 and Bg2, it might become a King's Indian Attack.
ok. Yeah, I couldn't find it on the database, so I though it may have a name that somebody knew. Thanks though!!
What`s your database`s name?
the chess.com one
C60: Ruy Lopez (Quite popular!:)
hahahahaha, I mean the idea of the bishop attacking the queen, that part.
Get "ChessBase 12." I think you just might find lots of answers. On another subject, did you check out that fool who wonders if lefties have an advantage in OTB Chess? The next post of his will probably be "Do 7 footers have the edge in Chess"? I was blocked from responding to his site. So much for free speech.
He edited his post. Changed the diagram entirely post~#1 and has made nonsense of his own thread.
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6
Is what was originally shown.
Certainly not the Ruy Lopez, which is characterised by 3.Bb5. (EDIT : in the current diagram, showing 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d3 (?) b6 (?) 4.Bg5)
I don't know the name of 3.d3, but it certainly isn't a very good opening. 3...b6 looks dubious too, in this move order.
He edited it @ Irontiger.
Look at the responses/comments.
Was: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6
originally. Which is of course the Ruy Lopez :)
Yes, I did edit it, I knew that what wasn't in the brackets was the Ruy Lopez, I wanted to know what the opening in the brackets was. Everyone said ruy lopez, so I got rid of what I didn't want recognised, and just made it the brackets stuff.
said the blind man
I hear you said the deaf mute and the cripple got up and walked away.
Just looks like a crappy side variation of a reversed Philidor, which itself is at least fairly crappy even when well played, e.g., with Be2 instead of Bg5.
