This is a live chess game (5 minutes, unrated) that I played. I played Black and my opponent played White. In this game, I played the fishing pole trap. Hope you enjoy the game!
Nice end position. Weird game haha. I like it! :)
Thats not really the Fishing pole trap! The fishing pole trap is checkmate and yours its not!
it is the fishing pole trap you should have immediately exchanged on c6 though. then Qh4! is possible on next turn after you "kick" the knight from defending it
...... Man... This was played on me a few months ago.... I love it! Gonna use it at Nationals next month (Vegas)
Anyone with any sense knows how to defend this with white nowadays & then black is in less than perfect position.
I think you could have a very low chance on winning by doing so much sacrifices xD I think if your opponent do not follow the moves you want him to play you'll be on a great trouble
A terrible game.
This trap is crap.
6.hg4 is a bad blunder. 6.c3 or 6.d3 and Black is in very bad shape.
8...Qh4 9.Qh3 (forced) Qxh3 10.gh3 dc6 and Black is a pawn up with much the better position.
9.d4 is another blunder. White had to play 9.Qg3.
20.b4 is the last straw (in a losing position).
My current playing set-up. Whats yours?
