Blitz Chess #335: Ruy Lopez w/ 5.d3

This is a blitz chess game I played as white with time control 3|0. The opening was the Ruy Lopez with the modest 5. d3 system. Play develops slowly in this one with both sides simply developing, trying to improve the position of one’s pieces, and trying to exploit weakened squares. This game was played while livestreaming at and has a very atypical ending.
