    Post a move in which you felt so particularly clever that you just had to tell somebody.  If you post them in puzzles it'll be all the better.

    A position white can get into with Ruy Lopez when white avoids exchange. I think its called legal's mate.

    An easy trap to avoid but still interesting. I thought it was pretty clever when i saw it for the first time.

    Greater creater, that trap doesn't work unless white first plays 7. h3 and black plays Bh4, otherwise black just plays 7...Nxe5.

    Again this trap is "easy to avoid" (7...Nxe5). But it still works if black gets greedy and takes 7...Bxd1. Anyone that knows about this trap will move 7...Nxe5. I just found it interesting

    The point is that if you play it straight away it's a blunder. If you first play h3 and black responds Bh5 then you can do it and the best black ends up is down a pawn.

    No meant 1 move.  Not a whole game.
