  1. why not knight takes e5 instead of putting h3? for what is the h3 on the legal trap

  2. The thing is that such traps are always dependent on mindset of the oponent..

  3. Legal is pronounced Lay gall after French player Sire de Légall. And Ruy Lopez is pronounced Roy.

  4. After king h4 the bishop will kill your horse please check at 3.55

  5. I don't understand when doing the last or trap he didn't capture the knight with his rook

  6. Trap number 3 withe pown became a knight but you forgot because it's unprotected black castle could take it easily 🤣

  7. I’ve got a question. At 6:53, in the Lasker Trap, why would you promote the pawn to a knight when you can promote it to a Queen? That would force the enemy rook to take the Queen and then you play Bg4+ to win the enemy Queen as the enemy knight is no longer there to defend against your bishop attack.

  8. No wonder they call it Ukrainian immortal. Just loved it.

  9. Blundering a queen to checkmate your opponent is the cruelest thing I can imagine.

  10. This wasn't what I wanted when I searched chesty traps but it'll do.

    Wait what….

  11. Ralf K Dean Forex & Cryptocurrency Channel says:

    Don't want to seem pedantic but its Legall not Legal. This trap was named after French chess master Francois Antoine de Legall. Its also known as the Blackburn Trap. Thought you might like to know.

  12. In the legal trap after white knight captures e5, then black knight captures white knight on e5, white's lost on the spot.

  13. No.3 Trap is not gonna work here you can see white can take your pawn by king

  14. Hello. At 6:57, when you make the knight check, why wouldn't white simply capture that knight with the rook sat in the next square? Thanks.

  15. Why in the Lasker trap they wouldn't take the knight with their rook??

  16. Chess is not a very complicated game really, but it is the most "involved" by far, with possibilities of tactical play, almost like a black hole of possibilities that our brains explore, sometime finding gold, sometimes being lost forever. It is a primitive game based on the warfare of royalty. What a waste of life that has been in reality, and on the board for many people. So I now just make a fist, and pound it on the table so all the pieces fly off the board, and claim victory from the liberty that lead to scientific advancement. 🙂

  17. Are these the top 6 chess traps that Magnus will fall for?
    I will study this 11 min well, ————————–and show him "what's what!".

  18. 7:59 My computer game, (Gametop, grand master chess 3, easy adult level), white queen will move to d5, and smoke you.
    Make a vid of you beating it from that position and post it, (it will be in that position at that "easy adult level".). I know you will not be posting the first game as your win.
    Most of us play computer games. I think I can beat you, if I can beat that game at the easy adult level, (I did win the last 2 though. never did 2 in a row before. 1 out of 10 is average.).

  19. 7:03 rook takes knights check,king doesnt have to move although u should take with the pawn and turn into a knight so then u put ur white bishop and deliver check and that gives u a free queen and possible u can turn in to a mate if you take with yours

  20. Very successful Traps! Keep the very good Job!

  21. in the Lasker trap, why wouldn't the king just eat the pawn ?

  22. In the Lasker trap, why doesn't the castle take the third knight?

  23. “Up by a decent amount of material” dude I’m plus a knight and minus a pawn, I’m still gonna lose the game

  24. What happens if oppenent captures knight instead of pawn in BSGambit

  25. In 6:48 why didn’t the king capture the pawn on F2? That seemed like the more sensible thing to do.

  26. at 7:04 you put knight at G1 and put king on check, there rook can kill the knight and later you take queen and king takes queen. youll lose

  27. Dapat po inuulit nyo 3 beses bwat isa kc mahirap ilista

  28. In legal trap, I’m just wondering why white pawn threatens bishop 1:05 if white horse can directly take the pawn, leaving the queen (for the bishop to capture)

  29. 7:00 Why white wouldnt just take the pawn/knight with his rock?

  30. Warning : Will work only when ur opponent doesn't know about these traps.

  31. Lasker trap won't work because the knight would be taken down by the rook and we will be trapped

  32. What is rook doing when knight is checking on king in trap 3.
