Just so I don't go crazy: You haven't even touched the 3 .. a6 lines yet, correct? If you're on episode 7 and haven't gotten to the main line you may be recording "Quick Ruy" videos the rest of your life, Dennis! :O

Correct: no 3...a6 lines yet. That comes after the Berlin. I hope to finish the series before I turn 50.

I don't play either side of the opening, but it looks like general type endgame position with queens off the board. Therefore, useful. My 1st intuition is1. BG5+ for white. I like it because it forces black to make some defensive move. If black blocks with his dark squared bishop, white eliminates blacks' bishop pair. Not bad. If black plays 1... Ke8 then 2.Rd1 makes no sense as the video brought up. However, a move like 2.h3 by white should suffice. It gives white the h2 square to back up to, all the while hitting that weak c7 pawn in black's camp. And white might be able to play g4 at a timely spot. That would be my preference, but the fiancetto of the dark squared bishop by white isn't a bad plan either.

@ cropduster: In fact, it's the move 9.Bg5+ that doesn't make any sense, once one realizes that the "attacking" follow-up with Rd1 doesn't go anywhere. You're right to note that White can follow with h3, allowing the bishop to retreat to h2 (presumably via f4) in case Black attacks the bishop, but that could have been done straight away without throwing the check in first. Black very often plays ...Ke8 and ...h6 without being asked, so 9.Bg5+ at best wastes a tempo for White.

A good idea to start this way, piece by piece, pawn by pawn. Thanks a lot !

Hi Dennis,

I really enjoyed the video, but it seemed to just abruptly end in mid-sentence. Technical problems?
