Can someone explain why 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 Be7 6.Bxc6 is known as the Delayed Ruy Lopez Exchange Deferred? Why is their the Deferred at the end? Wouldn't "Delayed Ruy Lopez Exchange" characterize the variation?

By the way, a more common name for this line is "Steenwijk Variation" after a game played by Euwe in 1940.

LR, do you know some more about Len M Pickett? He wrote a whole bunch of booklets. I own the ones on the Bird and the Danish Gambit. That last one was for a long time the only source on 2.d4 exd4 3.c3 dxc3 4.Nxc3. Firnhaber in 1988 didn't really change that. Only Müller and Voigt dropped the booklet into irrelevance, despite omitting a chapter on 4.Bc4 Bb4.


He was an English amateur who, I believe, played for lewisham.  He analyzed a number of openings with his club mate Tony Swift and Tony Gillam published some of their work.  No idea how strong he was, but think I've seen him referred to as a strong amateur.  Maybe one of the Brits can help?

He also wrote a nice little booklet on the Philidor, featuring the mainline Modern Hanham with the maneuver Qd8-e8 + Be7-d8-c7(or b6).  I've seen that referred to sometimes as the "Pickett shuffle".

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 - Ruy Lopez Exchange = ERL (Ex.Ruy.Lo)

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.Bc6 = Delayed ERL = DERL

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 Be7 6.Bc6 = Delayed ERL Deferred = DERLD

I dont know who invented the names...


I can't remember if Len Pickett coined the phrase DERLD or not, but he wrote a short monograph on the DERLD in the 1970s.
