The Open (aka. Tarrasch) Defence
In the Morphy open line (also called the
Tarrasch Defence or "The Open Defence"), Black
captures White's KP on K5(e4) with his
K-side Knight instead of the close
5..P-QKt4 (the Archangel).
Generally leads to a complex, unbalanced position where both sides have
chances to win.
