Openings Named for Greco

Greco Defence � 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Qf6 � A popular opening choice by novice players, it has also been used by players who, according to International Master Gary Lane, "should know better". Also known as the McConnell Defense.

Greco Countergambit � 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f5 � An aggressive but rather dubious choice for Black which often leads to wild and tricky positions. FIDE Master Dennis Monokroussos even goes so far as to describe it as "possibly the worst opening in chess". Also known as the Latvian Gambit.
