Too bad that 17.Kd2 is book, and winning for White (e.g. Kritz- Golod, Biel 2010).

How do you know what my level is?

Your rating is 1514. That's not very high. Of course, I can't boast about my own rating either, but..

Can't one get an idea about a player's strength by looking at his games?

eleanor-the-great made perfectly clear that (s)he shares this line with us just for the fun of it, so why care about the rating?

eleanor-the-great

it's not really theory we were just analysing the Ruy Lopez and some how this just came up I'm quite an agressive player

eleanor-the-great
