Giuoco Piano - 7 Move Checkmate!!

Nov 28, 2011, 3:19 PM |

There is a well-known trick in the Giuoco Piano on move 5 which, if your opponent falls for it, there is checkmate on move 7! The combination was first played in 1787 in Paris by a chess player called Kermur Sire De Legall.

I am not a player of the Italian game... but when I read about this very famous 7-move game, I was pretty amazed with the checkmate and know any true chess lover will appreciate this famous game! ENJOY! Cool
