  2. all these lines are crazy noone gonna rememberr all this stuff😅

  3. The traps are worth to try except that first one.💪🏻

  4. Can you make the same video but from black's Pov 😅

  5. Forgive me igor , but why would the pawn not block the check during the 2nd trap ?.. solidified by queen 👍

  6. I don't need to increase my Elo rating I need to increase my I.Q.!

  7. What if black plays Ng4? instead of Nh7? in the first trap

  8. The first trap is completely losing for white if black plays Ng4 (-3.6 Evaluation) Igor if you are showing a losing variation at least tell us that.

  9. In the first chess club I knew (Italy) trap number one (inspired by the style of Gioacchino Greco) was more fashionable than pizza and cappuccino. The fact is that if you avoid panic and defend well, it just does NOT work (8. … Ng4!). I grew up on spaghetti and these things (Bxf7+… Bxh7+… Bg5,h6,h4.. slammed on the board with a sneer) played by old gentlemen puffing lungfuls of awful smelling over-fermented Tuscan cigars in my face to make them work better.

  10. Thanks Igor. You're a great teacher. Love your videos.
