Open Games

All " Open Game " Openings shall be discussed here.



#1      Italian Game :

Description : One of the most common openings in AMATEUR tournament play. It isn't seen much in high- level competition due to the clearly superior Ruy Lopez ( Which I'll Cover Next ).


The Italian game is achieved by the following move order :

1. e4 e5
2. Nf3 Nc6
3. Bc4

( transposition is also possible . )

Respondable Moves : 

3.... Nd4 :-  ( NOT REALLY RECOMMENDED AGAINST GOOD PLAYERS )


The Blackburne - Shilling Gambit. BEWARE BEGINNERS!!!!!!!! This is not a real gambit. Here are the accepted traps :

Variation 1 :-

4. Nxe5?? Qg5
5. Nxf7 ?? Qxg7!!
6. Rf1 Qxe4!!
7. Be2 ( Qe2 loses loads of material ) Nf3#

Variation 2 :

5. Ng4 d5!!
6. Bxd5 Qxg4
7. Qxg4 Bxg4

3.....Bc5 :-


The Giuoco Piano ( The Quiet Game ) is a black move which I personally recommend. it has a strong continuation and stops 4. d3 followed by 5. Ng5 due to 0-0 by then. Black can now continue with 4...Nf6.

4. d3 Gives rise to the Giuoco Pianissimo.

3....Nf6 :-



The Agressive Two Knight's Defense. It is generally regarded as a good opening, but i still prefer the Giouco Piano. Here are the variations : ( Courtesy Wikipedia ,  i haven't studied the two knights myself enough, i dont prefer it )
