How is that a trap as opposed to punishing a series of obvious blunders?


I mean it pretty much works whenever your opponent plays Nge7 in the Evans Gambit, which is actually a good move, but O-O is not... even after Nge7 though you still have a bunch of traps lol


I've used this trap on like ten people already lol, it literally happens about half the time I play it, and not a single person hasn't played O-O in response to Ng5 lol

i tried the blackburn shilling gambit and its the worst trap ever no one falls for that anymore so thats that


I saw a decent club player fall for the Blackbourne Shilling the other day.

It made me look into it again. "Don't take the free pawn" is what I remembered, but actually, if you do, after Qg5, Bxf7+!? is not so bad for White.


That must be fun. First watch the glee with which your opponent plays Qg5, only for it to turn into shock after Bxf7. But it won't happen. I don't play the Italian, and hardly anyone plays the BSG and with good reason.

I saw a Youtube video a while ago, where a GM got positively angry at people playing the BSG. "You may win the odd game, but it will not make you a better chess player," was his position.
