If these seem too easy or too hard, or to have no clear answers, never mind!
You are at least learning the right questions you should be asking yourself in a certain type of position, and that is half the battle when it comes to finding good moves.

I hope you enjoy examining the great ideas of great minds in this book. Nonetheless, it is alive and kicking more than years later. Without any preparation, Black challenges the e4pawn. There is no definite refutation, and Radjabov has played it with success at the highest level.
Playing like this requires an adventurous spirit combined with some hard knowledge of theory. Game 34 K. For example In contrast after It allows Black to build a big centre, but White aims to cut it down to size with the help of some sharp tactics.
For example if Against Or if Question: Okay, but after It looks all wrong to me. Generally speaking in the Ruy Lopez, the downfall of the e4-pawn is a cause of celebration for Black, and a source of regret for White.
But here things have happened very fast — the black king is still in the centre and his defences have been weakened by the removal of the f7-pawn.

White already has better control of the center and has stuck Black with doubled pawns. These doubled pawns can either be a weakness or a strength, depending on how Black uses them and how White fights against them. In a late endgame with many of the pieces traded off, this doubled pawn will be a big problem for Black because his pawn majority on the queenside 4 vs 3 is nullified.
With pieces on the board, however, this doubled pawn is less of a liability. Aside from the pawn majority problem for Black, he does have an extra half-open file available that White does not have. Both sides have the open d-file to use but only Black has the half-open e-file leading towards the e4-pawn that could be a potential target.
