Tomas Bragesjös Ruy Lopez games

Introduction

Since 2011 I play the white side in either Ruy Lopez or the Berlin variation of Ruy Lopez with Nc3 aka Spanish Four Knights.

Spanish Four Knights is a universal system that can be reached via Ruy Lopez Berlin, Three Knights game, Vienna Game, Nimzovich defence, Petroff Defence and Alekhine defence. My statistics vs a local FIDE Master who is an Alekhine expert increased much when I got him out of hes pet defence by playing 2 Nc3.

I have also Scotch Four Knights in my repertour as well. There are a few lines where Scotch Four Knights can transpose to Spanish Four Knights positions that can also be reached via Ruy Lopez and I have reached this in several over the board games.

In thematical tournaments at ICCF

I played the Berlin variation of Ruy Lopez with Nc3 aka Spanish Four Knights in all of my white games in five Petroff tournaments at ICCF, including in one final tournament. I have also played it in team matches for Team Sweden as well as in over the board team matches for local club. I have also played it in normal tournaments, both over the board and at ICCF. I played Scotch Four Knights in my latest thematical event to get more variation.
