Bishops Opening MCO-14 - All Lines

 

The Bishop's Opening is not a particularly good opening for White, but school kids love to play variations of it at tournaments when they play White, hoping to lure inexperienced or careless competitors into a Scholar's Mate. Thus, it is important to learn to defend against the opening when playing Black. These six examples constitute MCO-14's entire coverage of the opening. Usually, a quick Black Nf6 move squelches White's ploy, but Black needs to play carefully to fend off a White Bishop-Queen or Knight-Queen combo attack. Practice defending the opening in chess club: not at a tournament. White usually ends up with a disadvantage if Black knows how to play carefully.
