Ruy Lopez


1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.O-O Be7 6.Re1 b5 7.Bb3 d6 8.c3 Bg4 9.d3 ( The consistent play is 9.d4 If White does not open the centre, Black need not castle. ) 9...h6 The preparation to an interesting attack. 10.Nbd2 Na5 11.Bc2 Nh7 12.a4 c5 13.axb5 axb5 14.Qe2



White: Teichmann Black: Duras

( Artificial. He should, at any rate, play 14.Nf1 Ng5 need not be feared, as he could simply take the Knight with 15.Bxg5 and after 15...hxg5 play 16.Ne3 Be6 17.g4 in which case his King would only be apparently but not really in danger. ) 14...Ng5 15.Bd1 O-O 16.Qf1 Ne6 17.h3 Bh5 18.g3 Qc7 19.Qg2 c4 20.Be2 Bg6 21.Qf1 Rac8 22.Nh2 f5 23.exf5 Bxf5 24.Ng4 Bg5 Black conducted the whole attack in magnificent style. The last move completes the envelopment of White's forces by fixing the Knight at d2.25.Ne4

White: TeichmannBlack: Duras
( His only chance was 25.dxc4 bxc4 26.Rxa5 Qxa5 27.Nxc4 By sacrificing the Exchange for a pawn he would have freed himself from his cramped position, and he ought then to have offered a good resistance by planting the Knight at e3, whence he could not be easily driven away. ) 25...Nb3 26.Nxg5 Nxa1
