In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov will share with you the 5 best chess opening traps for White after 1.e4. He will also show you how to not get trapped if you’re playing Black. The traps have the main idea of playing the White bishop on c4, targeting the f7-square; so most of these traps are from the Italian Game (Giuoco Piano) and the Bishop’s Opening.
A good thing about these traps are that they happen in the most-commonly played moves by Black, and they all seem natural moves. Only precise play from Black can save them, which means you’ve more chances to beat your opponents!
