Three more traps in this installment. The first is the Lasker's Trap after the great Emmanuel Lasker himself. At the end of the moves of this trap, white is down a piece with a king on the run, and black
should have a very comfortable game. It happens in the Albin-Countergambit of the Queen's Gambit.Wherein the Queen's Gambit, black decides to counterattack with 2.e4 rather than a classical QGD or QGA.
Trap in the Albin Countergambit(1.d4 d5 2.c4 e4)
Trap#3- Trap in the Torre Attack.
This final trap comes out of the Torre attack, and is another useful one to know.
Trap in the Torre Attack(1.d4, 2. Nf3, and 3. Bg5(moves for black can vary.)
Hope you enjoyed these!
