Lion Opening System

The lion opening system in chess is an opening setup for Black. It has some characteristics similar to a Philidor defence (with d6 and e5), or a Hungarian Defence (with Be7). Black may develop the Queen by c6 and Qc7, and then seek control of the Kingside dark squares via playing h6, g5, Ng6, and Nf4.
