In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov will teach you the deadliest chess opening trap. You will see how top grandmasters (in over-the-board games) were checkmated in about 10 moves. Former world championship challenger Sergey Karjakin was one of the victims.
The good thing about this trap is that it is UNIVERSAL – you can apply this in several openings, because it has one common tactical, attacking pattern. Therefore, you need not memorize these moves or variations.
You just have to learn the KEY tactical pattern of sacrificing your knight and queen in the center to get rid of the opponent’s fianchettoed bishop, creating the dark-squared weakness. You then storm inside and checkmate the king with your bishop and knight.
