[ECO code C20]
|THE CENTRE PAWN (aka. Lopez) OPENING|
White leaves the "Épine Dorsale" with a
Queen's Bishop's Pawn to QB3(c3)
to support 3.P-Q4.
The Centre Pawn Opening (aka. Lopez Opg. or McLeod Attack) is
rarely seen as it blocks his QKt and several alternative moves
allow White greater initiatives.
The risk is that Black, being unattacked for now, still has time to counter
in the centre for ..P-Q4, securing full equality.
1. P-K4 P-K4
2. P-QB3 Transp.from Saragossa
