In today’s chess video, I am going to show
you some amazing chess opening tricks and Traps in the Englund Gambit. And plus, I also have a really interesting
chess puzzle for you all. So stay tuned till the end and keep watching Chess Talk. Let’s start with the opening. D4 and then E5. This is called the Englund gambit. This is not an opening I would recommend for
black, but since this is not played that often, many white players don’t know how to respond
to this and that’s what you can take advantage of, especially in blitz and bullet games. There are some very nasty Traps that you can
setup as black and believe me, you can completely destroy your opponent if he does not play
correctly. Okay, from here, white obviously takes your pawn. He is getting it for free so why not. Then you bring out your knight to attack this
pawn. White develops his knight and supports it. Then we play queen e7, adding another attacker. White brings out his bishop to defend. And that’s when you play this stunning move,
queen b4 check, launching a double attack on the king and bishop. White has 2 logical replies. He can either block this check with his queen
or bishop. If he blocks with his queen, then he is gone. Let me show you how. After queen d2, we take this pawn on b2. His rook is in trouble so the only way he
can save it is by offering to exchange queens. But to his surprise, we have this beautiful
move, bishop to b4 and this sweety is gone. Now let’s go back. In this position, if white blocks this check
with his bishop, then again, we will take on b2. And now comes the most tricky part in the
game. If white plays this move correctly, then he
will have a solid advantage. But if he messes it up, then it’s curtains
for him. If you think logically, there are 2 main moves
that white can play to save his rook. One is bishop to c3 and the other is knight
to c3. The most tempting option would be bishop to
c3 attacking the queen. I have personally seen most players moving
their bishop especially in the blitz and bullet format and that is a big mistake. Let me show you the consequences. After white plays bishop c3, we will play
the lethal move bishop b4. If he takes our bishop, then we can take back
with our knight. Now we are double attacking this pawn and
even threatening to fork the king and rook. This looks very unpleasant for white and there
isn’t much that he can do from here. He will have to sacrifice his knight and then
it’s just a matter of time before he is knocked off. Going back, in this position, if he plays
queen to d2, then we can simply take this bishop. He cannot take back with his queen because
then queen to c3 would be a checkmate. So he will have to take with his knight, but
then, he loses his rook. And even if you analyse this position, more
or less this game is over. You should easily win it from here. Going back, now let me show you how white should play this. But wait, are you enjoying this video? If yes, then hit the thumbs up button right
now. It really motivates me & helps me in planning the future content on this channel. Okay, let’s flip the board. We now know that Bishop c3 is a very bad move. The best move for white is knight to c3. There’s nothing much black can do from here. I will go through the most common moves that
you can expect from black. If he plays bishop b4, then you can play rook to b1 attacking the queen. Then queen a3. And then you can play knight d5, attacking the
bishop with these 3 pieces and at the same time, threatening a fork on the next move. If bishop takes, then queen takes. Black is then forced to play king d8 to stop the check. Then you can play queen to g5 check and as
you can see, you have a lot of attacking options from here so it should be a good game for
you. Going back, in this position, if he decides
to move his bishop back to a5, protecting this pawn, then you can simply play rook b5. Bishop d2 will lead to the same line as we
discussed earlier. And if he plays bishop b6, then you can simply
take with your rook. Now no matter how he takes your rook, you
can simply play knight c7 check. King d8, knight takes rook. Queen takes knight. And still if you see, we are way ahead in
development, black can’t castle and we have an extra pawn as well. So again, you have a solid advantage. Going back, in this position, if black plays
something like knight to b4, attacking this pawn, then you can easily diffuse this by
playing knight d4. Going back again, if he decides to run away with his queen like this, then you can attack it with knight to d5. And as soon as the queen moves, you can take
this pawn and then take his rook. Moral of the story is that if you play this
correctly as white, then you will always be dominating this game. Okay, so It’s puzzle time. But before moving onto today’s chess puzzle,
