THE BISHOP'S OPENING
White quits the "Dorsal Fin" to develop Queen's Bishop before any knight. He/she targets KB7(f7), the Black king's weakest point, prevents ..P-Q4 and keeps a P-KB4 option but may aim to transpose (ie. change an order of moves tactically - the Bishop's Opg. can lead to many other popular lines), or may plan Scholar's Mate (3.Q-R5, 4.QxBP++mate). Played by Philidor who preferred to delay his Kts. W-Alt.
	White	Black
 1.	P-K4	P-K4
