This one just so
Do u have any idea y black moved Nxe2? That wasn't very wise!
It's a very common trick and has been played numerous times before. I can't give an exact example of this trick, but it's kind of a combination of two of the traps in the Caro-Kann and Petroff:
Here is an example of the Legall's Mate.
All of these mates have to have your opponenet do exact movements( wich are pretty dumb) anyone know any mates where its almost certain it will work?
he could have taken your knight with his knight on move5 and he would be up a knight as the knight protects the bishop
A trick is legals mate
I like 7 move checkmate. Cool .!
SOOO GOOD HELPED ME A LOT
Cant black just block?
black would have captured the white knight using his knight rather than taking the queen . in this way he would be protecting the bishop and still in position to strike the queen which would be a great threat.
