🔹 The BEST Chess Opening Against 1.e4 – Every Move is a Trap! –

In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov shows you one of the biggest turnarounds in the history of chess! It seems like this shocking chess move happens once in a century.

The first game in the video was played by the former world chess champion, Emanuel Lasker, in a simul event in 1903. Lasker played a brilliant combination to promote his pawn and just when he was expecting his opponent to resign, the tables were turned and Lasker was the one who eventually resigned.

A similar shocking chess move happened almost a century later, in 2000, in a game played between the former world chess champion Garry Kasparov and Jan Timman. It was Kasparov who found the ‘trick’ to win in this game. Watch the video and see if you can find it.
