Two Knights Defense

The moves of the two Knights Defense are:

1. e4 e5
2.Nf3 Nc6
3.Bc4 Nf6


White moves
two knights defense

The move 3....Nf6 is one of the best moves versus 3.Bc4. It is more aggressive than 3....Bc5 or 3....Be7.

The e-pawn is attacked now and White has to do something about it.

This is a very old and popular chess opening which was played in many tournaments and is analysed well theoretically and practically.
