Chess Trap #4 - Hand caught in the cookie jar? (Queen's Gambit)
This is my other favorite trap line in the Queen's Gambit featuring a pawn sacrifice this time, and if black takes the cookie white wins with a beautiful combination! I mean, who doesn't like cookies? lol
This is not only a fairly common position, but the same idea of sacrificing the b pawn followed by Rb1 is a motif you will see in many other openings as well so I hope this is helpful. It's just particularly crushing in this line in combo with another star move! But enough cookie talk... video is below! -Stacia
