Chess Trap #3 - Devastating queen sacrifice in the Queen's Gambit!

This is my favorite trap line in the Queen's Gambit featuring a queen sacrifice! This position is fairly common and I recommend memorizing the line as it will come up! Also, you will have a good position even if black chooses not to go directly into the line as white gets an early e4 resulting in a strong central pawn duo and knights on their best squares.

 

Imagine my surprise when I was analyzing a game and the computer recommended this crazy sacrifice!  But it's a lovely, easy to use trap and I do believe similar traps come up in e4 lines; though I'm a d4 player.  happy.png 

 

Hope you enjoy and get to sack your queen as a result with great reward!  Thanks for checking this out if you do.   -Stacia
