VIENNA GAME - Falkbeer Var.
The Stanley Variation (aka. Bishop's Var.)

Black's KKt threatened White's KP, for 3..P-Q4.
White develops his King's Bishop to triple Q5(d5) control and target Black's KBP, rejecting the 3.P-B4 main to reserve K-side options. Often planned via 2.B-B4 to avoid 2..Kt-QB3. UK-born Charles Stanley (1819-1901) founded US chess journals. W-Alt.
