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