The Giuoco Piano

The Giuoco Piano is a variation of the Italian Game.  It's is black's most popular response and gives black a good game.  White has many options from this position.

1.  Mainline Giuoco Piano:  This variation offers winning chances for both sides but in some variaitions it can get a little dangerous.

2.  Evans Gambit:  One of white's more aggressive options.  It usually does pretty well and it is a respected gambit.

3.  Transpose to Max Lange Attack:  White can transpose to another opening.

This is not the best option for white, but it is interesting.
