In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov analyzes a game played by the world champion Magnus Carlsen, where he SHOCKED his opponent with the Halloween Gambit. The classical Halloween Gambit follows the move order: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Nxe5. At first, it may seem like a beginner’s mistake and White overlooked that the pawn is protected by Black’s knight on c6.

However, that’s not the case and White has some compensation even though the reason for this sacrifice is totally unclear; and the move itself can be a shocker for your opponent. In this game, Carlsen played this gambit in a slightly different move order. An interesting trivia is that Magnus Carlsen was only 11-years old when he played this game.
