Ruy Lopez vs The Italian Game
Have you ever wondered what is better for white, the Ruy Lopez or The Italian Game? Well that's why I'm here. To show you what I think is the best openning.
The Italian Game: In The Italian Game white starts out with a good attack. White is planning on generating a huge king side attack.This could be very helpful for white and give him a win. Now I will show you the main moves of The Italian Game:
As you can see white is planning on playing d4 but he just wasted a move to protect the e4 pawn and must wait a coule moves until white can play d4. There is another downside though. If The Italian Game is the most popular openning than won't most people have a special openning to play against it? So you must be very prepared to see any openning.
The Ruy Lopez: The Ruy Lopez is a devistating openning. Many grandmasters recomend this openning especialy for begginers. Many people think it's the same as the Italian Game. It's not! This openning is actually a lot diffrent than the Italian Game! Here's what I mean:
As you can see unlike the Italian Game white does not waste a move with d3. It is also a very tactical game and also very exciting! Another good thing if you're a begginer if you play the Ruy Lopez your opponent will wonder what you're doing!
So in conclusion I recomend the Ruy Lopez because of it's exciting play!
