[ECO code C23]
The Calabrian Counter-Gambit
Black rarely advances his King's Bishop's Pawn to KB4(f5) hoping that if White accepts the gambit then Black may overrun the centre by 3..Kt-KB3, 4..P-Q4. First given by Polerio (c.1550-1610) but named after Greco's homeland. Now a dubious line. B-Alt.
White Black 1. P-K4 P-K4 2. B-B4 P-KB4?!
WHITE to or Undo or Jump or Clear
