Italian Game, Blackburne Shilling Gambit for Black

The Blackburne Shilling Gambit or the Schilling-Kostić gambit is the name facetiously given to a dubious chess opening, derived from an offshoot of the Italian Game, that begins:

1. e4 e5
2. Nf3 Nc6
3. Bc4 Nd4?!

It is also sometimes referred to as the Kostić Gambit after the Serbian grandmaster Borislav Kostić, who played it in the early 20th century.

The Italian Game is a family of chess openings beginning with the moves:

1. e4 e5
2. Nf3 Nc6
3. Bc4

This opening is defined by the development of the white bishop to c4 (the so-called “Italian bishop”), where it attacks Black’s vulnerable f7-square. It is part of the large family of Open Games or Double King’s Pawn Games.

The Italian Game is one of the oldest recorded chess openings; it occurs in the Göttingen manuscript and was developed by players such as Damiano and Polerio in the 16th century, and later by Greco in 1620, who gave the game its main line. It has been extensively analyzed for more than 300 years.

The term Italian Game is sometimes used interchangeably with Giuoco Piano, although the latter also refers particularly to play after 3…Bc5.

The Encyclopaedia of Chess Openings gives the Italian Game ten codes: C50–C54 for the Giuoco Piano, and C55–C59 for the Two Knights Defense. Side lines are covered under C50.
