Opening Theory

This game is quite like a opening in one of Bobby Fischer's book. What I am trying to illustrate is the movement of the bishop and the queen side pawns. I think there is actually a name out there for the movement of the bishop, it is called the Ruy Lopez.

1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5

A few moves after the posistion pawns trying to take away the bishop castling and so on. It may seem like a bad position for black to some people, but the black pawns a6 b5 gives black a mobility on that wing. However black is then a defender, but since the attacker white in this case does nothing much but move out the pieces it can be uncertain whether black will remain a defender long if he/she knows how to win back the initiative.
