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.

Between Queen to E4 and Bishop to G4 is much strongest move for the opponent since if the white Queen captured the night A6 then the Bishop G4 opponent can recaptured first the Rook D1 then, it can be a normal move or possible move for the opponent, the variation is not equal besides the position

Если у меня в среднем 1,500 рейтинг, я знаю ещё пока низкий, но как узнать при каком разряде какой соответствует рейтинг?

  9. Hello Igor, I must say I find it difficult to believe that any half decent player would bring his/ her queen out with no support let alone so early in the game without the idea of developing his pieces in the conventional way

  10. Hmm …
    I am the Philippines.
    Though I was a bit too late to learn to play chess until I was inspired me to go back in the board game again … with of course giving credit to the Netflix's The Queen's Game led by Anya Taylor-Joy aka Beth Harmon.

    As I came across with this video, I came to realized that like me needs to rehash more to improve what was lost in my younger years … my love and interest playing the board game.

    I felt more inspired how you deal with options you gave which seem proved more credible to topple the opponent.

    Just to let you know, from now on, you wil be my light to my winning games forward. I will take note that all the lessons you have, the videos you have, will be a part of my plan to further my knowledge, as I greatly appreciate sincerely your
