How to play against the Ruy Lopez Berlin defence?

    There is a video by Andrew Martin that covers the berlin ("The ABC of the Ruy Lopez). My personal favorite is 5.d3, with a closed game. Black will most likely transpose into 3..a6 lines, with  4.d3. It is pretty good for white.

    Why not 4.d4,exd4 5.0-0,a6 6.Ba4,Be7 7.Re1,b5?  White seems to get a good game with 5...Nxe4 6.Re1,d5 7.Qxd4,Bd6
