    Dude you're all wrong. The best trap is the mouse trap. Works everything. You set it it up in your kitchen. Add a piece of cheese. Wait about an hour or so. And then boom. You've caught the mouse.

    Im sure this has been answered but on the fishing pole trap why would white castle and leave his e4 pawn unprotected at the same time opening himself up to the fishing pole trap? Black can either take the e4 pawn or go for the fishing pole trap. Is taking the e4 pawn a bad move for black?

  • thechesswebsite

    thechesswebsite

    15 ditë më parë

    Not necessarily a bad move for black but it definitely changes the game. If black takes on e4 then white plays Re1 and will win the pawn back in short order. It's a fine way to play as black but not common.

    really comes down to what happens if they don't fall for the trap. If they are going to fall for the trap then you are right, you can play the move earlier. If they don't fall for the trap you are in a good spot if the bishop is back but in a bad spot if it's not.

    Here's a nice, fun trap that gets most beginners. You play as black. White opens with e4, you go e5. Nf3 Nf6 Nxe5 Qe7! Nf3 Nxe4. Here's the critical moment. White has to block their king with either Qe2 or Be2. If they don't and play the usual Nc3??, that just loses to Nxc3+ with discovered check on the king and the knight attacking the queen. I guarantee you this works on 90% of people below 1000 elo.

    It really comes down to black not falling for the trap. They can play 5...Nxe5 6. Qxg4 Nxc4 and white is down material. But if the bishop is on h5 then 6...Nxe5 7. Qxh5 Nxc4 8. Qb5+ and then white takes the black knight.

    can you not capture the pawn on e5 with knight even when the bishop is still on g4?(legal trap)

    I guess you could making the bishop go back with the pawn is making the opponent think you are a casual player and don’t have much up your sleeve. But otherwise I think you are correct and dont see anything that would prevent you from just capturing the pawn right there

    I think that most of the people recognise the first trap as the "Oh no my queen trap"

    Im struggling to see why on Lasker trap, when pawn becomes knight, rook does not take. Somebody have an answer?

    Then black can play Bg4 and white loses the queen.

    6:55 the knight on g1 is free. There's a rook beside it.

    If the rook takes the knight then black plays Bg4 and wins white's queen.

    The Lasker trap doesn't make sense. Why doesn't h1 white rook.. just take the knight.. instead video says that king will just move back to protect queen. But white could also just take the knight .. did I miss something ..

    If the rook takes the knight then black plays Bg4 and wins the white queen. That would be devastating for white.

    In the Lasker the rook could take the third knight

    he could but then black plays Bg4+ and wins the queen. So it's up to white if they want to take a knight and give up their queen.
