This is a live chess game (5 minutes, unrated) that I played. I played Black and my opponent played White. In this game, I played the fishing pole trap. Hope you enjoy the game!
Nice end position. Weird game haha. I like it! :)
Thats not really the Fishing pole trap! The fishing pole trap is checkmate and yours its not!
...... Man... This was played on me a few months ago.... I love it! Gonna use it at Nationals next month (Vegas)
Anyone with any sense knows how to defend this with white nowadays & then black is in less than perfect position.
I think you could have a very low chance on winning by doing so much sacrifices xD I think if your opponent do not follow the moves you want him to play you'll be on a great trouble
A terrible game.
This trap is crap.
6.hg4 is a bad blunder. 6.c3 or 6.d3 and Black is in very bad shape.
8...Qh4 9.Qh3 (forced) Qxh3 10.gh3 dc6 and Black is a pawn up with much the better position.
9.d4 is another blunder. White had to play 9.Qg3.
20.b4 is the last straw (in a losing position).
