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.

  1. What if black plays pawn to c6 after white castles?

  2. What if the queen moves back to D8 after being attacked by the bishop on e3?

  3. At the 8:25 8.25 minute mark, couldn’t you checkmate him with Queen C6?

  4. there is another solution with a nice sacrifice involved for the moment at 13:19

    bishop to H7, takes pawn. rook takes.
    queen to G6, check
    black king advances to E7
    bishop to C5, check
    black king to E6
    knight to G5, check mate

    same thing really, but slight variation

  5. That's the thing about tricky gambits youtubers will post them up thinking they'll get veiws and tell people that these traps will be work fantastic if your opponents just plays natural book moves what they don't realise is that some patzers who don't even have proper tactical accumen to defend their position just memorise these traps and claim themselves to know the certain opening what these patzers don't understand is that they only know a trappy line of the opening and since they just memorise it they don't really build up their understanding and when someone plays a classical lines with them they just crumble into pieces trappy lines are not starters to the main course it's the sweet desert after u learn all the technicalities in an opening

  6. courageous and inspiring opening gambits concealing overwhelming precision surprise; makes chess the game it is. what else you got

  7. What if queen goes on e5 after we put bishop on e3?

  8. I need help, I want to counter my friends opening but I don’t know how. First he opens pawn B3 then after that bishop B2. Is there any way I can infiltrate with knight with him opening like that?

  9. Loved this Gambit. Will try it out. Just amazed at how vast and Beautiful Chess is

  10. In 9:01 after taking Na6 by queen.if bishop cross d1 define the continuevesen

  11. What if black was to play b4 instead of playing g4 how do we go on bout that as the white player

  12. Yesterday against 1600 player I won using this trap. Worth playable

  13. What if the queen just goes back home after you threaten her with the bishop?

  14. Helo guy's i stat a channel that chess trap many in my channel my channel name is nihal gamer chess trap ok frinds

  15. My answer was Qxc7, if black takes back with Nxc7 then white delievers checkmate by Nxc7.

  16. 3:10 wouldn’t black attack the queen using bishop protected by knight?

  17. Just played a same move after watching video.and it was the best ever gameplay for mistake ,no inaccuracy , no blunder ,thnk you sir..

  18. What is the name of the opening gambit you showed

  19. I don't understand why there is an assumption that Queen is just going to allow Knight to saunter from B5 to C7. If I was black and I saw Knight @ B5. I would be killing it immediately.

  20. Answer: 1Q-f2 BxR, 2B-c5+ K-d7, 3BxQ KxN, 4BxB RxB, 5 KxB. What's the score? White has a queen against a rook and a pawn. Black could also give up his queen for the the checking bishop.

  21. their was also a checkmate with qc6
    that one was shorter how come you didnt execute that one. It was when blacks rook moved to to threaten the queen

  22. You could be grand master, for beginars, not professional players, for learners.

  23. 8:54 What about Qxc7, Nxc7, then your knight captures on c7 and its checkmate? (Well only if you opponent is stupid)
