The Max Lange Defence

White developed his QKt first, planning 3.P-KB4 (a form of King's Gambit) to lure Black off-centre.
Black develops his own Queen's Knight to support his KP (over the 2..Kt-KB3 main), ready for White's gambit KBP. Endorsed by Max Lange (1832-99) in a German 1855 book (though older). B-Alt.
