One of the less usual queen's-pawn openings, the Trompowsky immediately develops the bishop to an active spot, with the intention (usually) to capture on f6 and double Black's pawns.
- Leads to original play
- White may have to give up the two bishops
- Black can gain time attacking the Bg5
- The absence of the bishop may weaken the b2 pawn
