The Guioco Pianissimo is a more solid variation of the Guioco Piano. It is really just an opening that is ideal for developing your pieces and not much else.

Still this opening remains very popular with beginners because it is very natural and easy to memorize.

The Stonewall Variation is the pinnacle of solid chess openings. Black’s pawn structure on c6, d5, e6, and f5 is very rigid and so it is a double edge. On one hand, if black can manage to get c8 bishop active, which tends to be easier said than done, then white has a long road to getting a win.
