The Ruy Lopez employs strategy basics on tactics. Ray Haines shows that active open play leads to surprising opportunities. If this was an American football game, one might say that White flushes the Black king out of the pocket and tackled him for mate.
After White's eleventh move, Black has tried a couple other options. One try was from William Lombardy, a contemporary of Bobby Fischer. Lombardy was a grandmaster who became a priest. I am a chess player who spent 26 years in the clergy, so we had that in common. We were Facebook friends, but I never met Bill personally. R.I.P. Lombardy.
