🔹 7 Best Chess Opening Traps in the English Opening –
In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov teaches you a really powerful chess opening that will scare your opponents – it’s called the Tiger’s Trap! It happens in the English Opening, the Reversed Sicilian to be precise, which happens after the opening moves: 1.c4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.Nf3 Nc6 4.g3.
Here White is aiming to fianchetto the bishop with Bg2 and then castle kingside. Black’s most common responses are 4…Bb4 which is the mainline and also leads to the Tiger’s Trap, 4…Bc5, and 4…d5. And there are some really cool traps in all these variations.

In 0:41 what if black just move to e4?
Qf5 checkmate. Bishop can't take cuz of our bishop
White bishop takes black bishop n check mate…
Qf5 is checkmate.
Queen to F5 taking advantage of bishop pin
3:00 black have defence a5…
gave you a thumbs up solely because of your own little tiger you introduced 🙂
I saw rook to A6. I completely missed qf5.. I suppose both work
What about Black rook to 8B When white pawn takes bishop (queen) Black rook or queen takes white queen BLACK is ahead. OR Black rook takes white queen on B3
Q-f5. That was outside the box
Queen to f5
This game just in your dreams
Qc5 # puzzle solved 😆
I meant Qc4 #
What if I play the rook to B8 instead of taking the pawn ? No trap it is , correct ?
The Bishop is pind.
That kitty is so cute
Sound effect is just to loud…n bs if u ask me other than that not a bad vid
Queen to F5 =check mate
At 3:07 … wouldn’t it just be all around smarter to move the rook to B1 that way if he takes the bishop you take with the queen and then you’re still attacking your opponents Queen on B3.
Qf5…and game over😇
rook covers 6th rank,queen now covers the 5th rank,a4 and c4 are covered by the pawn,knight with b4 and finally our bishop pins his bishop to the king.Nice puzzle.
Thanks for the demo and video
@2:56 black can play A5 to defend the bishop? Or just check?
Thank you for the video!
QC4 is the checkmate, not QF5 where king can capture the knight.
Ok so what if at 3:06 my opponent plays rook h8! To block the pawn and a pin kind off to my Queen?
Man black firstly move knight I loose the game
I love the effects when a double attack is made! 😊
Not possible in one move
QF5 mates in 1. Bxd3, (forced) Ka5, Qc5 mate in 2.
I may be the only one who thinks that queen a6 is the right choice? Or i am wrong?
Black is not defence linr
Queen F5+ 💯%😁
After 1. C4 e5 2. Nc3 Nf6 3. Nf3 Nc6 4. g3 Bb4 5. Nd5 Nxd5 6. Cxd5 e4 7.dxc6 exf3 and white has a huge lead. 😳 um, Qb3 is pretty sharp and black has nothing
