Traps in Sound Position

Traps in sound position
Game 1
[Black "English opening"]

1.c4 e6 2. Nc3 Nf6 3. Nf3 {i usually play e3 or g3} b6 4. e4 Bb7 5. e5 Ne4 6. Bd3 Nxc3 7. dxc3 {so far all moves made have been direct and obvious} d6 8. Ng5! {now }
(8. ...dxe5? 9. Nxf7+! Kxf7 10. Bg6+! Ke7? 11.Bg5 )
{mate a more entertaining continuation is}
8. ...Bxg2 9.Rg1 Bb7 10. Bxh7 Be7(10. ...dxe5?? 11. Qxd8+ Kxd8 12. Nf7+) 11. Nxf7+! Kxf7 12. Qh5+ Kf8 13. Rxg7+! Kxg7 14. Qg6+ Kf8 15.Bh6
{mate oh, if ur playing black i advise 8.... g6 }

Game 2
[Black "English Opening"] 1.c4 e6 2.Nf3 b6 3.Nc3 Bb7 4.e4 Bb4 {Nf6 is usual} 5.Qc2 Bxc3 6.Qxc3! Bxe4
{at this point most players greedily go Qxg7 Qf6 when material and advantage lie equal
but} 7. d3!! Bxf3 8.Qxg7 Qf6 9.Bh6!
{now
9. ... Bb7 Qf8 mate. This has actually happened in tournament play}
9. ... Qxg7 10.Bxg7 Bb7 11.Bxh8 {is an exchage up, and the h8 bishop can be saved by Rg1, g4, and g5.}

Game 3
[Black "English Opening"]
{Positional Blunder}
{yet another english opening}
1.c4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.g3 Nc6 4.Nf3 g6
{all has developed smoothly. This position can and has been reached in many ways}
5.d4 exd4 6.Nxd4 Ne5
{Now white lures black to take his c4 pawn}
7.Bf4!
{If black accepts with the natural}
7. ... Nxc4? 8.Nb5 d6 9.Qa4! c6 10. Qxc4 cxb5 11.Nxb5 Be6 12.Nc7+ Ke7 13.Nxe6 fxe6 14.Qb4 {black is positionally losing
correct for black is to ignore c4 and develop
7. ... Qe7 and now black has a trick of his own
8. Nb5? Nf3 mate}

Re: Traps in Sound Position

[Black "Marshall Defense"]
{GREEK GIFT}
{A bishop sacrifice on h7 is a greek gift}

1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 d5 3.cxd5 Nxd5 4.e4 Nf6 5.Nc3 e6 6.Nf3 Bb4 7.Bd3 Nc6 8.0-0 0-0 {everything seems peaceful}
9. e5 Nd5 10.Bxh7+! {The greek gift}
10. ... Kxh7 11. Ng5+
(11. ... Kg8 Qh5 is obvious
I examine the main line using Fritz)
11. ... Kg6 12.Qd3+ f5 13.Qg3 Qd7 14.Nxe6+ Kf7 {another sacrifice} 15.Qxg7+! Kxe6 16.Qg6+ Nf6 (Ke7 17.Bg5+) 17.d5+! Kxe5? {then} Qg3+{, Qe3+ and b3 mate.
black is mincemeat in all lines.}

[Black "FRENCH DEFENSE : WINAWER"]
{GREEK GIFT PART 2}
{Black escapes somewhat ok if he defends precisely}

1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e5 c5 5.a3 Bxc3 6.bxc3 Nc6 7.f4 Nge7 8.Nf3 0-0 9.Bd3 c4?
{our friend the greek gift again}
10.Bxh7+! Kxh7 11.Ng5+ Kg6 12.Qg4 f5 13.Qg3
{black is on a knife edge. most blacks fall for}
{13. ... Qd7? or Qa5? or Qb6? 14.Qh3! wins
the only way out is}
13. ... Qe8! 14.Nxe6+ Kf7 15.Nc7 Qd8 16.Nxa8 Be6 {Black will have two pieces for a rook and two pawns, and white a lovely fortress.}
{You can analyse the greek gift variation also with
9. ... Qc7
9. ... Qb6
9. ... b6 etc
I think they should differ a little.}

[Black "PETROFF DEFENSE}
"]
{GREEK GIFT PART 3}
{Gifted people are fond of giving gifts. This gift by black is known, and it takes place in the petroff defence, of all openings.}
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Nxe5 d6 4.Nf3 Nxe4
{If ur playing against computers or like draws, this opening is for you.}
5.d4 d5 6.Bd3 Bd6 7.0-0 (I play 7.h3!) Bg4
(7.0-0 calls for simplicity)
8.c4 0-0 9.cxd5{?!}{right is Nc3} f5 10.Re1?
{Black gifts the gift.}
Bxh2+! 11.Kxh2 Nxf2 12.Qd2 Nxd3 13.Qxd3 Bxf3 14.Qxf3 Qh4+ {wins an exchange.}

Re: Traps in Sound Position

[Black "PHILDOR DEFENCE"]
{Trapped Queen
Your next philidorian opponent will be shocked..}

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 Nd7 4.Bc4 c6 5.Ng5 Nh6 6.a4! Be7?
{Every one of black's moves were good and purposeful and logical. I must conclude he was only very unfortunate:}
7.Bxf7+!! Nxf7 8.Ne6 {- the queen is the target.}
{8.... Qa5+? 9.Bd2 Qb6 10.a5 Qb5 11.Nc7+}
8.... Qb6? 9.a5 Qb4+ 10.c3 Qc4 11.Nc7+ Kd8 12.Na3

[Black "FRENCH DEFENCE"]
{False Hope}

1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 c5 4.c3 cxd4 5.cxd4 dxe4 6.Nxe4 Bd7 7.Nf3 Bc6 8.Bd3 Nf6 9.Nxf6+
{The position looks sterile, well known in theory and gxf6 leads to draw. But what if black chooses}
9. ... Qxf6 10.Bg5! {It looks at first sight that the BQ is trapped and black is doomed. But}
10. ...Bxf3! {Observe, now the bishop's protection is gone and will be taken. So you conclude that white is doomed.
But there is yet another twist:}
11.Qc1! Bb4+ 12.Kf1 Qxd4 13.Qc8+ Qd8 14.Qxd8# {mate.}

[Black "RUY LOPEZ"]
{Mate or Queen?}
{One more reason for you to play the interesting cozio defense.}

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nge7 {This, for those who dont know, is the cozio defence.} 4.Nc3 Ng6 5.d4 exd4 6.Nxd4 Bc5 7.Be3 Bxd4 8.Bxd4 Qg5. {A fine attacking move and it also sets a trap.}
9.0-0?? Nxd4 10.Qxd4 Nh4! 1-0
{see the double threat Qxg2 mate and Nf3+ winning the queen.
correct for white is 9.g3 or even Kf1 }

One of my friend Trebbor has asked that if there is 13. ... f4 then what will happen . I gone through the game and got the line that if 13. ...f4 will be played then We will be position , pawn and exchange up. There is more chances to win the game.

Re: Traps in Sound Position

[Black "<Nimzo-Indian Defense>"]
{Trap, not Fight
I had never heard of traps in the Nimzo in my early years. But then I came across this.}

1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.Bg5! {(I prefer 4.e3)} h6 5.Bh4 Qe7
{Good queen activation}
6.Nf3 d6 7.Qa4+ Nc6! {One very beautiful, subtle and long trap.}
8.d5? exd5 9.cxd5 Qe4!
{now,
10.dxc6?? Bxc3+ {and Qxa4
only correct reply for white is}
10.Nd2! Qxh4 11.dxc6 0-0!! {foreseeing many things }12.a3
{Did black just lose a piece?}
12. ... Ng4! 13.g3 Qf6
{the best and unlikely reply is
14.Nde4 Bxc3+ 15.bxc3 Qe5 16.Rd1 bxc6 17.Qxc6 Rb8! bags a huge black advantage and is probably enough to win eventually.
But your moderately intelligent opponent will fall for}
14.axb4? Qxf2+ 15.Kd1 b5!!
{(not 15. ... Ne3+ 16.Kc1 Qe1+ Qd1) This surprising move removes either one of the protectors of d1.}
16.Qb3 Be6 17. Qa3 Ne3+ 18.Kc1 Qe1+ 19.Nd1 Qxd1 {mate
A long combination, and its root was white's move 8.}

[Black "<Ruy Lopez>"]
{Never take it with a Knight Part 1}

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.d4 b5 6.Bb3
{so what happens?}
6. ... Nxd4? 7.Bxf7+! Kxf7
{You can work out the rest yourself, but here it is.} 8.Nxe5 Ke6 9.Qxd4 c5 10.Qc3 Nxe4 11.Qe3 Kxe5? 12.Nc3 d5 13.Nxe4 dxe4? 14.Qf4+
{and}
14. ... Ke6? Qxe4+
{14. ... Kd5? Qd2+ wins the queen.}

[Black "<Ruy Lopez>"]
{More Ruy Lopez
I was looking through games of R.J.Fischer when I found this amusing line, though Im not sure if Mr Fischer invented it himself. You may call it a 'trap' if you wish.}

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 d6 5.0-0 Bg4 6.h3 Bh5 7.c3 Qf6 8.g4 Bg6
{After these routine moves,} 9.d4!! Bxe4 10.Nbd2
{Here is my analysis:}
{10.... Bd3 11.Bxc6 (I don't like 11.dxe5[Fritz]) bxc6 12.Re1 Be7 13.dxe5 { bags a huge advantage with the pawn.}
10.... Bxf3 11.Nxf3 Be7 {(11.... 0-0-0?? Bg5)} 12.d5 b5 13.Bc2 e4! 14.Bxe4 Ne5 Nxe5 {white has regained material with interest.
Fischer's russian opponent chose 10.... Bg6? 11.Bxc6 bxc6 12.dxe5 dxe5 13.Nxe5! and lost in 9 more moves. (pointe 15.... Qxe5 Re1)}
