In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov will share with you one of the best chess openings that you can use when playing Internet blitz games. It is the Blackmar–Diemer Gambit, which follows the move order: 1.d4 d5 2.e4.
At first, it may seem like a not so sound idea for White, but when you’re playing online chess (blitz games) in order to win the game, you need to create problems for your opponent. Even the world champion, Magnus Carlsen, says “People crack under pressure… you’ve got to create those problems for your opponents”.
And one of the best ways for you to create such problems for your opponent early on in the game is to play a gambit. Because gambits always give you an extra tempo for development as well as a bunch of open lines and diagonals, which you can later use to attack your opponent.
In the following video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov has also explained the Halosar Trap from this gambit, which follows this move order: 1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.f3 exf3 5.Qf3.
