This is a blitz chess game I played as white with time control 5|0. The opening played was a Ruy Lopez, Exchange variation. With the exchange variation comes an important responsibility, namely great care of the light squares since white is without the light-squared bishop. White aims for an f4 pawn break, but black finds a direct path to stir up some trouble with this basic plan. Maintain control of the light-squares as white and you should be quite okay, without care of them you can lose control of the game.
