In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov shares with you the top 5 fastest checkmate traps in the Rousseau Gambit. The Rousseau Gambit (or Ponziani Countergambit) is a chess opening that begins with the moves: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 f5.
This gambit opening is very tricky and comes with a lot of deadly traps. It is very easy for White to make fatal mistakes and lose the game in the opening stage.
Even advanced-level players struggle to find the best moves in these variations and fall for the traps, as you can see in one of the examples in this video.
