Trap: Grand Prix Attack

Oct 29, 2008, 1:50 PM |

The Grand Prix Attack was originally feared by many grandmasters for its ability to have opponents checkmated in 25 moves (or less)! However, there is an anecdote...I just don't know it!

Here are two traps for white to play. (Pretend that black has only studied the Open Sicilian.) WARNING! Refutation found for the second trap. After Nb5, Ne4! EDIT: Refutation refuted! See correct second trap. And first trap has been extended.
