🔹 Most Common Chess Opening MISTAKE | Key Tactical Pattern –

In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov shares with you an aggressive variation in one of the most popular chess openings, the Two Knights Defense.

After 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5, most of your opponents hope for the Fried Liver Attack which happens after 4…d5 5.exd5 Nxd5?! But instead of 5…Nxd5, there is a tricky variation called the Fritz Variation which happens after 5…Nd4.

This tricky variation comes with a lot of hidden traps that even strong players fall for. In most of the variations, Black is winning in just about 10 moves!

  1. Wonderful
    I am very weak with black
    This will sure help me play better.

  2. just won my first game where the white pawn advances to d6.. such a great feeling to shut down that attack!

  3. I don't think I need to even try this to figure out that my opponents, especially at the low level I have, will NEVER, and I mean NEVER! make all these moves just like we see here. It just won't happen.

    It's the thought that counts though, I guess.

    Edit: Even IF I get lucky enough to get to the exact position at 2:28, all my opponent need do is to castle kingside and my kingside hopes are completely dashed. So that just leaves me taking the bishop and trying to win the queen on c2. They will NOT cooperate and at best, I MAY every once in a while end up 3 or 4 points up with a decent position when it's all said and done.

    That means I will risk losing dozens of GAMES, just trying to get up a piece once in a while. It's not worth it to me, although, there are some instructive tactics discussed here, but that's about it.
