In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov shows you the 6 powerful chess opening traps after 1.e4. And most importantly, even if your opponent is aware of these traps and doesn’t fall for them, you won’t damage your position, and you can just continue playing a normal game.

Igor starts with some of the simple traps, and then digs deeper into some really cool ones. Some of these traps are so cool that even the world champions Vishy Anand and Garry Kasparov were tricked by them!

  8. The sixth trap hardly counts, as the Short-Kasparov game was a themed exhibition game.
    Kasparov was forced to play black in the position after the horrible 3…Qh4+?! and 4…b5? (both of which he would of course never play). After the position had been set up, Kasparov wanted to resign right away, since, as he said "Black is already lost." Due to the spectators, this was not granted, and he had to play. Grudgingly, then, he did so for a few moves and then resigned.

  9. Always cool and perfect explanation of every move… Thank you very much

  10. I like traps 1 so good.thank you to teach me a chess

  11. Hi, in second trick if white plays pawn d4 to push knight back, but instead of it, black can move pawn to C5 to check the Queen, so white Queen needs to

  12. It is very dificult to play this on Bord

  13. Wow ,Very useful tricks ,thank for your info. God Bless

  14. haha Be2 looks too pasiv.. but Be2 has the good ideas

  15. On the second trap how about this move for black? 1e4e5 2Nf3nc6 3Be2Bc5 4Nxe5 Nxe5 5d4 Bxd4 6Qxd4 Qf6… and Black is doing ok?
