Stafford Gambit: PART 2: Chess Opening TRICK to Win Games Fast: Checkmate Moves, Traps & Strategy


In today’s chess video, I am going to show
you this amazing chess opening trick, called the Stafford Gambit. I will be covering all the traps in the Knight
c3 variation which many of you had requested in my previous video. So stay tuned till the end and keep watching
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

begin with e4, e5, knight f3 and knight f6. This is the Petrov’s Defense. Knight takes pawn and then we play knight
to c6, offering to exchange knights. Knight takes knight and then pawn takes this
knight. So from here, I had shown you two common moves
that white could play to save this pawn. He could either go with pawn to d3 or he could
play pawn to e5. I have covered all the tricks and traps for
these 2 variations in my previous video, so do check that out by clicking on the I button
above. Now let me show you some tricks in the third
variation. And that is, knight to c3 – developing the
Knight and at the same time, defending this pawn. So what do you do now? Well, you start with bishop c5, attacking
this weak king side pawn.From here, you will generally see 3 responses from white. The most common one, being bishop to c4. He is developing his bishop and attacking
your king side pawn. And plus, he has also prepared himself for
castling on the next move. Although this move might seem logical, but
this is actually a blunder from white. Let me show you what happens next. From here, you start attacking and play knight
to G4. White simply castles and protects his f2 pawn. But now comes the most deadly move and that
is, queen to h4. Now you are threatening to attack both f2
and h2 pawns. Queen to h2 will be checkmate so he will have
to play this forced move, pawn to h3. We will continue our attack and capture the
f2 pawn with our knight. If rook captures knight, then we can simply
recapture with our queen and we are at a solid advantage. If rook does not capture knight, then white
will have to move his queen because it is being attacked by our knight.So lets say white
plays queen to f3. He is anticipating your attack & trying to
bring his queen into the game. But after knight to h3 double check, white
will have to move his king to either h1 or h2. And after knight f2 discovered check from
the queen, if white blocks like this, then his queen is gone. And if he moves his king like this, then queen
to h1 is a beautiful checkmate. Now let’s go back and see the other 2 variations. So we now know that bishop to c4 is a bad
move. A better move in this position, would be bishop
to e2. White has prepared his king for castling and
at the same time, he is also preventing this black knight from jumping to this dangerous
G4 square. To counter this, we need to play queen to
d4, attacking the f2 pawn. White is left with no option but to castle
on the king’s side. And now, we can safely regain our lost pawn
by playing knight captures e4. If you look at the board carefully, although
the material is even, but black still has more active pieces. He can quickly castle, develop his bishop
and attack with all his pieces on the kings side. So all in all, black is in a slightly better
position here. Now let’s go back and see what is actually
the best move for White in this position. Can you find it?It is pawn to h3. This move stops black from playing any nasty
tricks. You can’t play knight to G4. And if you try something like queen to d4,
then white can easily counter it by playing queen to f3. Nevertheless, this trick is definitely worth
trying out in your games. Do Let me know in the comments if you have
