Chess Talk. Hello Chess Friends, I am 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

known as the Legal’s mate or the Blackburne Trap. This trap works by a queen sacrifice followed
by checkmate with minor pieces if Black accepts it. Let’s begin with the opening moves. We start with the king’s pawn opening E4 E5. Then knight f3 and knight c6. Then Bishop c4 and d6. This is the Italian game turned into Phildor
Defence. What you need to note here is the position
of the pieces. The sequence of moves could be different but
it will all result in the same position. So keep that in mind. From here, you will play knight c3. Now there is a very common move that you will
see from black and that is bishop to g4. He is developing his bishop & at the same
time, pinning your knight to the queen. But this actually is not a good move and you
can take advantage of this. Let me show you how. First, you will simply play pawn to h3. The best move for Black now would actually
be to capture the Knight. But this is not something you will see often. The most natural move that you will see from
black would be moving the bishop back to h5 and persisting with the pin. This is exactly what you want black to play. You will now start setting up your trap. You will begin with this surprising move knight
to E5. Yes, you are inviting black to capture your
queen with his bishop. If black tries to be greedy and takes your
queen, then he is gone. Because after bishop f7 check. Black has the only move king e7 and then knight
d5 is checkmate and it’s game over. Let me just go back and show you another variation
if black does not capture your queen. In this position, many of you might be wondering
why we played this pawn to h3, we could have straight away gone for knight E5. But the problem here is that if black decides
not to take the queen, then he can capture your knight and also defend his bishop from
being captured by your queen. This will be a significant advantage for Black. So Going back. By playing h3 first and kicking the bishop
back to h5, We can take this pawn and now even if black doesn’t take the queen and captures
the knight, we can capture the bishop first. And after this knight takes our bishop, we
can double attack by giving check and then capture the Knight easily. If you look at the position, we are not only
up a pawn but also significantly ahead in development. This trick is something you should definitely
try in Blitz and bullet games. Let me know in the comments if you have any

  2. My favourite opening for chess is to move my g2 pawn to g4 block and generally my opponent moves his d7 pawn to d6 by attacking my g4 pawn so I would protect it by moving my f2 pawn to f3 or he can also move his b7 pawn to b6 then I would move my f1 bishop to g2 so my opponent moves his c7 pawn to c6 and then I would move my g2 bishop to f3 so I would continue the game so please tell is it correct or not and how to continue it ….

  3. Is there a different way to do this with the same results? Everyone I play never opens like this, and most tricks require they do.

  4. But most chess players played d5 pawn but for att we need pawn to d6 .so what should we need to do in that mach .plz replay me I really need your answer๐Ÿ˜Ž thanks for making so good video for us.

  5. Hey bro thanks for these videos and tricks Before Some I was called as a noob of chess but now when I use these tricks they call me A pro player of chess because they don't know these tricks

  6. You rock
    Thank you Jetendra Advani
    You are the best
    Now everyone in town is afraid to play me
    I have successfully applied the Halosar trap and even when a new variation comes up I am still in a good position
    Also the fried liver counter attack is stunning which I am doing great at it by now
    But still need to learn some attacks for black since i am mostly good with white
    Thank you so much brother
    Keep up the good work

  7. Super trick I won in just 30 seconds because my opponent(unknown) did the same moves You are just amazing Jeetendra uncle

  8. I have 2 questions, isn't this similar to the Budapest gambit and 2 what would you do if he takes the knight while it's on f3 with his bishop?

  9. But while playing with master level in chess the bishop sacrifice to take knight then what to do

  10. It's so amazing. It worked good for me.While taking my queen my opponent was overexcited but she didn't realize that in a few moves I would give a checkmate.thank you so much chess talk for making me a good chess player.

  11. Nice but should show the video with an intelligent chess player so that we can understand properly. But still๐Ÿ‘

  12. This trap will work but, must be done exactly. And this is the same with any trap. Some will say my computer would beat it. The thing is that a computer doesn't know everything. It only knows what we tell it. Additionally, it won't make these moves most likely because it was already told about this trap from the beginning. The reason they work is that we don't know them, and realize all the rules of chess that are like law! You can't break the law of chess. So even if the computer gets to like move 3 in this trap it will lose. The law of chess will dictate it so. No way out for you or your computer. Note…all moves shown require exact precision. Like the pawn move on the bishop. And taking the bishop with the queen if rejected. This is crucial.

  13. Opponent never takes the bishop back. I asked my father y he did not do it he told that I would move the g2 pawn to g4 and would become a problem for bishop and waste of moves. Reply soon bro pls

  14. I tend to have the Queen taken away from me rather than intentionally giving her away. A King and Queen make a formidable pair. The game for me after her loss I must concede is a pointless exercise in loss, desperation and a mad effort to survive when the game is all but lost. Trying to live another move but knowing that situation is pointless and only sadiism, overconfidence or outright stupidity on my opponets part is the only hope I have of lasting to a draw. Any decent player wins if they have any advantage. God Save The Queen!

  15. I've had success with this trap, and my opponents have tried it with me, I recognized the trick, but he didn't know how to follow up successfully and I didn't either, we played out a wild game, I lost though

  16. Thank you Jithendra Bro because of your tricks I have qualified for Inter school tournament. Thank you ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„
