White leaves the "Épine Dorsale" with a Queen's Bishop's Pawn to QB3(c3) to support 3.P-Q4. The Centre Pawn Opening (aka. Lopez Opg. or McLeod Attack) is rarely seen as it blocks his QKt and several alternative moves allow White greater initiatives. The risk is that Black, being unattacked for now, still has time to counter in the centre for ..P-Q4, securing full equality. W-Alt.
