    Most of the time when White does this against me the next move (after dxc6) is Nxe5, which is easily refuted by Qd4. I think exchange variations like this one and in the French are cowardly for White; Black easily equalizes and is able to start building pressure. 5. O-O must be the best move but it's definitely not anything forcing a win.

    "The Ruy Lopez is one of the oldest chess openings and it is a great 

    testament to its fundamental soundness and variety that still enjoys

    tremendous popularity at every level of the game."  Gary Lane 

    come and join The Radical Ruy Lopez Group, we played thematic matches/vote chess and we have discussion to explore the variations.

    Giving up the bishop pair this early can't be worth it.

    but then black has more center control and will snap up the free pawn straight after, so therefore white is somewhat better off

    Supergamer: as can be seen in the database statistics, Black is in no trouble at all.

    I use this one almost always. If its followed by 4...dxc6 5.O-O, Black is in trouble.
