Why there are no good videos on Open Ruy Lopez for Black? Is the variation too bad for Black? There are lots of videos from the White side, but I did not find any good videos from the black side; why is it so?

  • Did you manage to find any videos or games showing ruy lopez played as black? Or is it not advisable to play ruy lopez when playing black? – Andrew Ebling May 17 '15 at 7:45

Why are you looking for video? How about looking for a game? Checkout chessgames.com then search for Open Ruy Lopez ECO code to look for games won by black. It will show you how black piece should play against open Ruy Lopez

  • Not necessarily. You'll often see games there where Black tried bad ideas as well. I agree that only looking for videos is limiting, but you'd at least want something that is intentionally an educational resource. – DTR Nov 27 '14 at 6:11
