[ECO code C20]
|THE KING'S HEAD OPENING|
White leaves the ""Épine Dorsale"
after mutual king's pawns, to (unambitiously) push his/her
King's Bishop's Pawn a single square
(rather than two for the far stronger 2.P-KB4
King's Gambit) so as to support his/her
KP. The King's Head is rarely played as several alternative
moves allow White greater initiatives.
1. P-K4 P-K4
2. P-KB3 Transp.from Barnes O.
