Typical setup for White is:

  • The dark square bishop may also be developed to f4 instead of g5. Once this bishop is deployed White follows up pawn to e3.
  • The g1 knight generally is situated on f3. However there are times when it may be better placed on e2. Just be sure to have deployed the light square bishop first.
  • White can castle to either side, with a kingside castle being the most common.
