Chess Opening: Ponziani Opening

The Ponziani Opening starts with 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.c3 as white looks to control the center of the board with d4 thrust. Black has many different options to defend but has to be careful as there are many traps that he can fall into.

Although many find this to be inferior to both the Ruy Lopez and the Italian Game, it has many exciting lines that give white a great game.
