Two Knights Defence:Morphy Variation[edit | edit source]
6 d3 Morphy Variation.
An attempt to fully hang onto the pawn. This variation does not inspire, giving up a good bishop for the currently out of play Knight is not something many players would choose. Therefore this variation is seldom played.
