The Noah's Ark chess trap in the Ruy Lopez, Modern Steinitz Defense results in black trapping white's light-squared bishop by force after tricking white into an immediate recapture on the 8th move of the game. The Noah's Ark trap is one of many chess traps for black out of the Ruy Lopez and, in this tutorial, I play through the moves to the chess trick itself while offering very brief tips.
