I watch from CENTRAL MINDANAO
Great video , thanks!!
damn that first trap was insane, i didnt even get to the rest of the video yet and already subbed.
I do love his voice. He does sound like he works for Putin
I only know the 3rd trap. It is just the way I play. Didn't know it was a trap.
The motionless architecture internationally count because plywood particularly pray around a cool bathtub. unwieldy, proud rooster
I come to your class,mr GM
it actually starts at 11:55 if you are interested in playing as black
Pl advise trap in case black plays e-5 early at 5 -6 moves
Thank you GM Smirnov for an excellent instructional video!
Don't use word inside the game, we don't clear to see
In the first trap i think black is fine if he plays Qa5 instead of Qb6
great but if Queen goes in a5 instead of b6, it' s not that great for white!?
This is to help white not black…clickbait 🙁
The 1st one is not trap just innocent thinking
Move 4 for black the better move is to capture with d pawn and also recapture with the queen
In other words, our nation is arming the Taliban again. |
😇 it |
If white plays d4, can black still play f5? Is that still sicilian defense?
i'm 1600 and i beat my 1800 friend with the 1st one!
2:22 isnt Kc6 a free queen?
Love these videos and your sense of humor!

Very help full 🌕
Qa5 stops first trap
Sempuurrnaaa i like it! Bacuse is the beat tenkyu ticher

3:10 is there a continuation if black play Qa5? ( because the knight is pinned ).
On the 4th trap, would you take the centre pawn with Q while you have the pin, then you can attack the corner?
At 10.57 , pawn f5 can deflect the queen with capturing the bishop in next move
cool video of chess
To show beginners dubious opening traps has very little do with chess teaching.
Bold of you to assume I can convert a one-pawn advantage
sicilian i just realized is reversed english 🤣
and bishop to d8 ? probably not as good but is checkmate also
1:14 If black plays e5 what should i do? What's the best continuation.
You misspelled 'Accelarated' in the dragon section for the segment title
in first case he move knight instead of rock pawn than wht will we do now …
Thanks for sharing
Hi, I've a question, What to do if black's queen goes to a5 in the first trap? does the trap still work?
A lot of stuff happened in 4 years. It would be amazing if you could update this video.
Good shii my guy 💯!! Seems like everyone around 1400 is playing Sicilian Defense 😂
what if at 3:07 black queen to a5
In one of the certain positions in this video the queen goes to B6 why wouldn't the queen just go to a5 and pin the night?
In another position in the accelerated dragon or whatever when the pawn recaptured back on C6 it would have been the other Pond that Queen's pond
There was a certain position in the dragon lever fish variation where Bishop could go to G4 and attack the Queen the gain a tempo for black
When the night moves to E6 black can capture with the pond on ff7 you'll still lose lots of material but it won't be checkmate
