The Wayward Queen Variation
(towards Scholar's Mate)
White leaves the "Épine Dorsale"
after mutual king's pawns with a rare "beginners" move, developing his
Queen early to KR5(h5) to
attack Black's king's pawn and threaten his weak KB2(f7) for a
potential Scholar's Mate (q.v.). Hardly
master play but better (more aggressive) than via 2.Q-B3(f3).
1. P-K4 P-K4 ?!=dubious but
2. Q-R5?! interesting
