In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov will share with you the best chess opening traps from the Ruy Lopez defense, which happens after the opening moves: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5.
It is also called the Spanish Opening or Spanish Game, named after 16th-century Spanish priest Ruy López de Segura. It is one of the most popular openings, with such a vast number of variations that all codes from C60 to C99 in the Encyclopaedia of Chess Openings (ECO) are assigned to them.
