🔹 The Best Chess Opening against 1…e5 | Scotch Gambit Traps –
In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov shares with you a deadly chess opening trap to win in just 7 moves. It is a variation from the Scotch Gambit (from the Scotch Game) which happens after the following moves: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 exd4 4.Ng5.
The main idea for White is to sacrifice the knight on f7 with Nxf7 and deliver a powerful attack against the Black’s king with Bc4+ followed by Qh5+, planning for a checkmate similar to that of the Scholar’s Mate.
A great thing is that it works even against advanced level players (according to the statistics of games played). It works extremely well till the 2000 rating level and even some players up to the 2200 rating range fall for this trap.
