Four Knights Game Italian Haines

Ray Haines won a Four Knights Game against the Italian Variation 4.Bc4. Ray wrote: "I played this line when I was in high school against a lot of players. This guy played it differently by putting the knight back on it home sq."

I examine the Italian 4.Bc4 in my Four Knights Playbook. If you play it often and learn a little theory, you're likely to score well. If it's just a blit experiment, oh well...

My Ruy Lopez Tactics book covers 500 combinations and mates.
My Open Game Tactics book covers 1.e4 e5 without Ruy Lopez.
