Opening Traps - Beware! - IV


Three more traps in this installment. The first is the Lasker's Trap after the great Emmanuel Lasker himself. At the end of the moves of this trap, white is down a piece with a king on the run, and black

should have a very comfortable game. It happens in the Albin-Countergambit of the Queen's Gambit.Wherein the Queen's Gambit, black decides to counterattack with 2.e4 rather than a classical QGD or QGA.

Trap in the Albin Countergambit(1.d4 d5 2.c4 e4)

Trap #2 - Yet another trap in the Ruy Lopez! This one was first done by Grandmaster Tarrasch, and this occurs, in the Steintz variation. This is a useful trap to know about, although because of it, this opening is not played very often nowadays.

Trap#3- Trap in the Torre Attack.

This final trap comes out of the Torre attack, and is another useful one to know.
