🔹 The Most Brutal Way to PUNISH Scholar’s Mate Trick –

The Wayward Queen Attack (also known as the Danvers Opening or the Patzer Opening) is one of the most common chess tricks played at the club level, which happens after the opening moves: 1.e4 e5 2.Qh5.

Of course, the main idea of White is to follow up with 3.Bc4 and checkmate you with 4.Qxf7# which is the Scholar’s Mate. Additionally, their strategy is to continue playing normal chess if Black (you) defend against the checkmate threat.

However, you should not let them get away with playing this weird, desperate attack. That’s why, in this video lesson GM Igor Smirnov teaches you the brutal way to punish this Wayward Queen Attack or early queen attack.

  1. @GMIgor Smirnov I just want to thank you for your new course. Perfect timing! You addressed the problem I've been having. I'm ready to Level Up!!!

  2. I didn't think a day would come when I laughed out loud at a chess video! I can't wait to try this as on lichess one opponent in 4 tries the wayward queen on me…

  3. Bb4 double check, followed by RE1 mate

  4. What if at 5:26 after Bh4 white plays Bxc2 offering a queen trade?

  5. Why would they worry about the pawn forking their pawn and bishop at 3:00 when they have checkmate in two and don’t need to get distracted by this? Also, what should you do if they don’t take but move the pawn forward to threaten the horse, as it’s got no where to go?

  6. "Hey mate that's what I call strategy!"

  8. Thank you so much. My friend has already know to play Wayward Queen correctly, but I don't think he would know this surprising line.

  9. I'm stuck at 730. What's the best opening for black and white to learn ?

  10. This some GM level counterattacking! Beautiful lines.

  11. White should play 4. d3 0-0 5. be2 … to guard the King and castling soon. Don't waste a Queen move.

  12. I love how much fun he's having with these now

  13. Good day igor, i want to thank you for this "effective" way to overcome the wayward queen "nightmare" since i have suffered a lot. Your way of explaining this line is faboulous & simple to learn. I promise you to study it very well in order to make an agressive, brutal & massive attacks. Have a pleasant day…

  14. lol this is called the kiddie countergambit

  15. I have a great idea for an episode. Brumenfeld countergambit. It ain't so known and can be pretty good for black. Maybe you'll be interested. Btw great episodes. I love them.

  16. 03:03 Go after this centralized Que king VERY funny 🤣😂

  17. 6:36 Isn't that just a M3 for black? With Be3. If Knight blocks then you just take it and win. If Bishop recaptures, you retake with knight and have two different Mate threats that cannot both be stopped. Qd1 & Qd2, each square is protected by one of the knights. You can take one of them or move the white knight to cover one of the squares, but you can't stop both.

  18. love your videos Igor and I recommend them to everyone I know that's interested in chess. they are only getting BETTER! love learning new tactics and your incorporation of music and jokes is money keep up the great work every time I get an email that you have a new video I get excited

  19. Your vids seem so cool. Seem? My opponents have never moved the way you say they most often do? So far I'm 0-14 when trying to apply your lines lol

  20. Would you say this the new go to strategy to punish the early queen attack over the standard variations?

  21. another idea worth exploring is actually e4 e5 Qh Nc6 Bc4 g5, repelling the Queen, Most players will the play Qf3 and you could then play f5 shortly after. If white takes with Queen, play d5 IMMIDEATLY, with a discoverd attack on the Queen (Bishop on c8) while simultaneously attacking whites Bishop on c4, winning it.

    Sure, it isnt as devastating as this, but it works too if you arent a fan of gambitting pawns.

  22. Dancing queen? Am I hearing strains of ABBA in the background by any chance?
