    The Italian game is a classic . When I used to play 1) ... e5 I usually just played the Hungarian Defense.

    Or check out the Evan's Gambit tournament thematic tournament that's going on at the moment.

    Tournament 1583

    Then there's the Möller Attack - also not particularly dull.

    Try this one. If you find this boring you're playing the wrong game.

    Möller Attack doesnt gives for white more than draw, if black knows theory.

    I`m playing Italian Guicco Piano sometimes with Ruy Lopez structure - c3,d3, Nbd2 etc.

    True (I don't play it as white). But it's still not dull.

    heck that's nothing, Gary Kasparov has played the italian game in tournaments more than once and is rated over 2800. (or was, not sure what he does now).

    In fact Valdimir Kramnik has even played it in tournaments, and he's the WC!

    tony has the right Idea!
