Italianz (mostly) 44s
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

Yummy stuffed ravioli with a pint of Scotch. Don't consume too much (or not at all). Many lines won't hold up to close scrutiny.

These games usually feature 1.e4, 2.Nf3, 3.Bc4, 4.d4, 5.0-0 or vice-versa. There are always exceptions in my large collections. (Sometimes it's a simple mouse click error!?) For example, some Three Knights games are included if White played 4.d4 or 5.d4.

gambitfan: Anti Max Lange:

1.e4 e5 2.♘f3 ♘c6 3.♗c4 ♘f6 4.d4 exd4 5.O-O ♘xe4 6.♖e1 d5 7.♗xd5 ♕xd5 8.♘c3

The Max Lange attack is:

1.e4 e5 2.♘f3 ♘c6 3.♗c4 ♘f6 4.d4 exd4 5.O-O ♗c5 6.e5!?

5. ... ♘xe4 seems to be a refutation of the famous so called Max Lange attack...
