Three Knights Game

The Three Knights Game is an opening in the King Pawn openings where three Knights are developed. If Black plays “3..Nf6” then it becomes the Four Knights Opening, so it’s only really called the “Three Knights Game” if Black plays something else (e.g. 3..g6 or 3..Bc5 or 3..Bb4).
