Three Knights Game – Opening Trick

Today I’d like to teach you how to confuse your opponents in the opening stage with a confusing opening trick. After the standard opening moves 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6, most players play 3.Bb5 going for the Ruy Lopez, or 3.Bc4 going for the Italian Game. But there’s a tricky alternative. You may play 3.Nc3 which is known as the Three Knights Game and it usually leads to a calm, positional game of chess.

BUT, you have something very unexpected for your opponents. You will learn how to trick your opponents after the most common replies of Black 3…Bc5 and 3…Nf6 which leads to the Four Knights Game.

You can find the PGN of this opening below:
