Lasker Trap: SECRET Chess Opening Trick to Win Fast: Best Strategy, Moves & Gambit + Endgame Puzzle


Hello Chess Friends. Today, I am going to share with you a secret
Chess opening trick to trap your opponent and win more games. This trick is amazing. You cannot afford to miss this. I also have an interesting puzzle for you
all so stay tuned till the end and keep watching Chess Talk. Hey, it’s me, Jeetendra Advani. If this is your first time on this channel
and you want to learn some cool chess tricks and become a better chess player, then start
now by subscribing and clicking the bell so you don’t miss any of my videos. Okay, so The trick I am going to show you
is popularly known as the Lasker trap. This trick can be played by black after the
Albin Counter gambit variation. So lets start with the opening. You are playing as black. White starts with d4, you play d5. Then pawn c4 and pawn e5. This is the Albin counter gambit. After this, white obviously captures your
pawn on e5. Now your next move will be pawn to d4. The idea behind this move is to stop White’s
knight from coming out on its preferred c3 square. Now White’s main intention here would be to
somehow get rid off your pawn on d4. A very common response that you will see from
white in this situation would be pawn e3. He is looking to trade the pawns and get some
space in the center. If he plays this move, then it’s great for
you. That’s exactly what you want. After this, you can play bishop b4 check. Now the obvious move for white here would
be to block with his bishop. Now it’s time for you to unleash a surprise
move. Instead of saving your bishop, you will capture
the pawn on e3. If your opponent has not seen this trap before,
then he will think you have made a blunder. So he will take no time and capture your bishop. If he plays this move, then he is gone. I will show you exactly how this works. After bishop b4, you will capture the pawn
on f2 and give check. White cannot capture this pawn because if
he does, then you will capture his queen for free. So the only move he has is to move his king
to e2. And now comes the most deadly move. You will capture this Knight with your pawn
and promote it to a knight. Yes, you heard it right. You will promote to a knight and NOT a queen. I will tell you later why we did that. For the moment, let’s continue with this. It’s check to white. White can capture your knight with his rook. If he does this, then bishop g4 check and
his queen is gone. Another variation would be if instead of capturing,
he moves his king to e1. Then you will play queen h4 check. If g3, then you can play queen to e4 and his
rook is dead. And if he plays d2, then you can bring out
your knight to c6 attacking the bishop. You can then also bring out your bishop to
g4 to target the white queen. You can castle queen’s side to give check
and attack along these open lines. So all in all, as black, you are not only
up a piece but you also have a lot of attacking options to win the game. Now those of you who are wondering in this
position, why didn’t we promote to a queen. Well, if we promote to a queen, then white
is not in check so he can take your queen and after you recapture, he can again take
your queen on g1 and the material is balanced. So that was the logic behind underpromoting
to a knight. Okay, now let’s look at this game from White’s
perspective. How can white save himself from this trap? Well, the best way would be that in this position,
white should not capture the bishop. Instead, he should capture this pawn on e3
immediately. Black can regain his lost pawn by playing
queen h4 check, then pawn g3 and then queen e4. If you look at the board carefully, you will
see that black is targetting the rook on h1, the pawn on e5 and the pawn on e3 since the
bishop is pinned. So in short, black will be able to even out
and the game will be in balance. So that was all about the Lasker Trap. Now quickly, let me just show you the solution
to my last video’s puzzle. I had asked you to find the best move for
White to draw this game. Well, the best move is king to e7. This was tough so only a few of you got it
right. Correct answers with perfect explanations
are on screen. I will be posting your names on my Facebook
page as well. Do check it out and like our page for more
such chess puzzles. So Coming back to the game now. After this, black will have to move his pawn
forward otherwise our king will catch it. Now you will play king d6. Again black will have to move his pawn. Now this is the right time to move your pawn. Black will obviously have to play bishop b5
to prevent your pawn from promoting to a queen. Now you will play king c5. This move does two things. You are targetting Black’s bishop. Plus, you are also threatening to stop Black’s
pawn from promoting. If black decides to save his pawn, then you
can capture the bishop. Both sides can then make queens and this would
be a draw. If black saves his bishop and plays it to
d7, then you can move your king to d4 and hunt down the pawn. Again, it will be a draw. So that’s how white should play. So Now its time for today’s chess puzzle. As you can see in this game, White’s king
is trapped in the corner. But he is well protected by all his pieces. The game looks even but Black has a beautiful
sequence of moves by which he can breakthrough and checkmate the white king in the next 3
moves. It is Black’s turn. Can you find the best move for Black? Comment with your answers. I want to see how many of you get it right. I will be sharing the Solution on my Facebook
