    Hey fellas. Had my supervisor teach me how to play chess last week, and I have a question. What moves to make after the ruy lopez bishop move? I know I should castle, but my boss told me there's 3 or 4 more moves to it afterwards to set up a solid defense. Maybe its not official, but lemme know what moves y'all would make. Playing as white btw. Maybe this post makes sense! Thanks guys,

    Ian

    you should describe the move, not just the name,

    as i play chess, and used to be quite good, but i never knew any of the names ..

    its going to depend on what move(s) Black makes.... sometimes they move out their rook pawn to attack your bishop.... etc, etc, its not always just some basic moves, even in the opening.

    If black is just making moves to be making moves then I use the time to bring out the other knight or maybe set up my other bishop in a Sicilian Defense kind of set-up by moving out the queen-side knight's pawn and then moving the bishop out to point down toward black's king-side rook.

    But if you don't watch what you're doing and pay attention to black's moves and what s/he might be setting up anything can back-fire.

    Its good to learn the moves, but you also have to get a feel for what's going on around you on the board. No joke, the very first formal match I ever played (in 7th grade), black tried using a basic Petroff's Defense against me so I teased him with a move that sacrificed my queen. He studied the board for awhile but never saw much past the fact that he could take my queen... I had him in checkmate three moves later, for a total of 9 moves.

    The best advice I can give you is to play, play, play... and add in reading and studying.

    I haven't played for a long time, and my mind and memory is older and slower than it used to be so I can't do it in my head anymore. I'd have to have you in front of me with a chess board to run through moves for you.
