What is the point of asking what works under 1000? Even if the trap doesn't work a 1000 rated players is liable to hang their knight on the very next move after refuting the trap. Every move is a trap when the opponent has a 50% chance to blunder in response. Nothing against 1000 rated players as I'm sure all my blunders look just as obvious to somebody higher rated than me. The point? Why bother with traps? Just play good moves.

playing good moves is nice ,but i assure the feeling when the trap works is sooooo good

playing bad moves because you hope your opponent will blunder? Why? What do you learn from this? It doesn't help you learn how to get better at chess

Sorry, but if you wanna stay 800 elo forever, keep on playing your trashy openings and no solid chess

See man you maybe trying to play to get higher elo, but I am Playing for fun not competitive, and its fun playing traps for me .

its the persons wish what he plays plus this forum was made so I could learn some traps to play them.

Also traps play good moves, not blunder for no reason

Sounds like the reasoning of a drug addict to me. No offense but you're not doing anything of your own merit so what is the cause of feeling "sooooo good"? It's like sucker punching your opponent before the bell rings and feeling good because the ref somehow didn't catch you. Question: did you start playing chess because it became popular and your friends are playing it or did you start playing chess because the game genuinely captures your imagination? I can kind of understand where you're coming from if you're just riding the wave but it really would make no sense to me if you actually came to enjoy the game independently.

Ok then. The answer is: all of them. All traps work under 1000 and probably up even to 2000 and beyond. I still fall for traps occasionally.

My opinion on traps?

Traps are a waste of time.

If the trap works, you learn NOTHING from winning that game. You already knew the trap. Your opponent, however, DOES learn something from losing that game. So you have cleverly helped your opponent to improve his game, while YOU do not. Nice going.

The only profit you might make by playing for traps is to grab a few cheap rating points... which you will lose again almost immediately since your increased rating does NOT correspond to any increase in your playing strength. You gained the points with a cheap trap, not with better play or improved understanding of chess... so of course you will lose the points back again as soon as your next trap fails.

I like ur thoughts

Englund gambit is a terrible gambit, this is what happens when you play it against anyone who has learned chess.

I tried it few times and very few opponents went into a trap. Even a “Primitive” approach like 1. d4 e5 2.dxe5 Nc6 3.Nf3 Qe7 4.g3 gives white an advantage and in main line white basicaly win by force. Once you will be willing to beat over 1000 opponents you will have to learn some serious opening.

Most traps are attempts at shortcuts, rather than ways to actually improve your game. If you want to defeat Davy Jones, you must learn real sword fighting abilities, and not randomly throwing your sword at him (imagine a double-sword wielding Jones...)
