The Neo-Archangelsk is back!

In this lesson, Dennis presents part two of his coverage of the Neo-Archangelsk line of the Ruy Lopez. He covers some of the more positional lines out of the main position (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 b5 6.Bb3 Bc5). He discusses lines arising after 7.c3 as well as 7.a4. These positional lines feature a good deal of the maneuvering typical of the closed Spanish game. Let us know what you think!
