    Me against Tom Murphy in 1987, after I had gotten sick of his Sicilian:

    1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 e6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 Bb4 6. Nb5!? Nxe4 7. Qg4 Bxc3+ 8. bxc3 Nf6 9. Qxg7 Rg8 10. Nd6+ Ke7 11. Ba3 Rxg7?? 12. Nf5+ Ke8 13. Nxg7# 1-0

    The most danger opening at intermediate level is bishop opening because it has very effective traps.1e4 e5 2.bc4 is main line and in this opening black has to play very precisely otherwise white gets +2 or +3 ..winning position.another very tricky opening is king's gambit...1.e4 e5 2.f4 In this opening ,white can play mad gambit and gives two piece sacrifice.But this is only suitable for highly tatctical players who has very decent knowledge of tactics..My 1930 fide rated friend played this opening in delhi open in january and one of his 1997 fide rated player resign in 9 moves so if you really want to play highly effective and positional traps...try kings gambit.

    All 1. e4 e5 games are tricky though, so anyone who plays 1...e5 has a lot to deal with, and to dish out.

    You failed. 1.a6? throws away the win. The correct first move was 1.b6!!

    By far the most common opening trap is the one that on the average of once a week an opponent falls for. the following 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 d6 5.Be2 0-0 6. 0-0 Nbd7? 7.e5 dxe5 8.e6! fxe6?? 9.Ng5 wins a piece or the exchange.
