High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles The Ruy Lopez is one of
the most popular openings, with such a vast number of variations
that in the Encyclopaedia of Chess Openings all codes from C60 to
C99 are assigned to them. The opening is named after the 16th
century Spanish priest Ruy L pez de Segura, who made a systematic
study of this and other openings in the 150-page book on chess
Libro del Ajedrez written in 1561. Though it bears his name, this
particular opening was included in the G ttingen manuscript, which
dates from around 1490. Popular use of the Ruy Lopez opening did
not develop, however, until the mid-1800s when Carl Jaenisch, a
Russian theoretician, "rediscovered" its potential. The opening
remains the most commonly used amongst the open games in master
play; it has been adopted by almost all players during their
careers, many of whom have played it with both colours.
