Trap in Damiano Defense 👀 one of the oldest chess openings 👀

With games dating back to the 16th century. It is a weak opening that gives a large advantage for White after 3.Nxe5. Even if White does not go for this continuation, simple development leads to an advantage since 2…f6 weakened Black’s kingside as well as took away the best square for the g8-knight.

If you feel exhausted and tired from chess I would suggest your to get couple of days off, I bet it will really help you and you will find inspiration once again. If you haven’t played for a while you could try couple of training games or you can go for blitz, it will definitely help your to get in the shape. Try different things to find the most suitable way for you.

10) I am ordinary chess players, but I am really interested in getting on tournament, what should I do?
First of all make sure that you are aware of tournament rules.

On random games, we tend to talk, we don’t keep track of moves nor time, we ignore various rules such as touching your figures, moving them, etc. Chess tournaments are completely different from random games, it is hard to explain whole process with words, in order to get better idea I would suggest you to visit official event and see everything for yourself.

Another important thing is to resolve various tactics on daily basis, you really need to work on your skills on daily basis if you want to improve yourself. I know I have said it numerous times before, but once again – pay attention to your weak spots, this is essential! In case of going on tournament, make sure that your current level is suitable for the event, don’t go for easy ones.


  1. U put the pawn back this isn’t really what would happen

  2. 6 ход черных пешка на D5 лучшая защита от мата я думаю.

  3. Queen g5, there isn’t a checkmate.

  4. The Blacks giving The horse like that was very unlikely unless you are a beginner

  5. Not any chess game is that stupid anymore 😂😂

  6. Вы бы знали сколько партий я так выиграл. Главное дожать!

  7. Pawn D5 would stop the attack after white bishop

  8. Черный Ферзь все это время ждет своего момента))

  9. I love you, your content and your channel, thank you so much for everything, hug from Portugal ❤

  10. Game not ended. Look at the black queen, hope of continuation

  11. "Damiano defense"
    Cool lemme try!
    Pawn to e4
    Enemy Pawn to e5
    horse to f3
    Enemy Horse to c6

  12. It's not a perfect defense, when white moves soldier to h4 black can move his horse or queen

  13. when queen e8 can save him instead of king g7

  14. а ферзя парализовало?

  15. No es jaque mate aún podías mover la dama.

  16. what if the king went to h5 , but not g7?

  17. 1.Так і не зрозумів сенс ходу короля після того, як походив білий пішак. Там не було шаха, можна було не відступати.
    2. В кінці є хід для королеви, тому мат таким чином не поставити

  18. What's about black queen? 🙂
    Is she sick so that can't move? 😂

  19. the bot never like that with. 1 – 250 beginner bot

  20. Don’t like this format

  21. After h4, Kg7 is a blunder. Someone playing Damiano will most likely not know that, but you can avoid an immediate checkmate if you play something like d5 instead

  22. When black moved the king from H6 to G7 (as a pre-safe king move), instead of saving the king at that time, move the bishop from f8 to e7 to double defend his G5 pawn (with the bishop at E7, queen at d8) this gambit is in vain

  23. Are you blind queen is able to take the pawn

  24. Whats the point of giving the knight for white at the start ?

  25. The pawn can be taken by the queen so this is fake

  26. 💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩😺💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩🤡💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩

  27. Побить пешку королевой и поставить мат❌
    Потратить ещё несколько ходов✅
