Two Knights Defense Traps: Chess Opening Tricks to Win Fast |Best Checkmate Moves, Strategy & Ideas


Hello Chess Friends, I am Jeetendra Advani. And Welcome to Chess Talk. In today’s chess video, I am going to show
you an amazing Chess Opening trick which will help you win more games. You need to watch this till the end because
I also have a really interesting chess Puzzle for you all. Let’s see if you can solve that. So without further ado, let’s get started. This is a trap for black which arises out of the two knights defense. Let’s get straight into it. The game starts
with e4 e5, knight f3 & knight c6. This is a very common opening played at the
intermediate & grandmaster level. From here, most white players bring out their bishop to attack on Black’s weakest square, and that is f7. If you see, at the moment, we are protecting
this g5 square with our queen so this knight cannot jump over here to attack this weak
f7 square. But what we are going to play now is knight
to f6. We are inviting white to move his knight here
because our queen is no longer defending this square. This pawn is being attacked twice by this
knight & bishop so we need to do something about it. Let’s block off this diagonal by playing pawn
to d5. Now white will naturally capture this pawn. What you don’t want to play here is something
like knight captures d5. Because white can sacrifice his knight like this & he can destroy you with the fried liver attack. I have made a detailed video on the fried
liver attack. You can check it out by clicking on the I
button above. Going back, some of the main moves in this position would be knight to a5 or pawn to b5 with the idea of attacking this bishop. We are not going cover any of these in this video. What I am going to show you is a cheeky little trap which starts with the move knight to d4. Now since, we are not threatening the bishop
or knight, white will obviously start thinking of attacking this weak square again. As you can see, this pawn is obstructing the
bishop from hitting this weak spot so he tries to get it out of the way by playing d6. But that’s a big mistake. After queen takes pawn, white is feeling on
top of the world. He has 2 options to attack now. He can either take this pawn with his knight
or take it with his bishop. If white captures this pawn with his knight,
then he is gone. Let me show you how. After knight takes pawn, it has a double attack
on our rook & queen. So we will slide our queen to c6. Notice how our queen is double attacking this
pawn & bishop. After knight takes rook, we will take this
pawn with our queen. White saves his rook by moving it next to
the king. From here, unfortunately for white, he will
have to lose either his king or queen. Just see this now. It’s queen e4 check. If he blocks with his bishop, then knight
to f3 is a beautiful smothered checkmate. If he does not block with his bishop, then
the only other option he has is to block with his queen, but then he loses his queen & will
ultimately lose the game. This trap resembles the one in the Blackburne
Shilling Gambit. I have made a detailed video on that as well. Don’t forget to watch it. You can tap on the ‘I’ button above that’s showing on your screen now. Okay, now let’s go back to this position. Now what if white takes this pawn with his
bishop instead of the knight. It will be a check so you have to move your
king. He will have to pull back his bishop because
it is only supported by this knight, which can be easily kicked away. So he plays bishop b3. We take this bishop with our knight. Pawn takes knight and then we advance this
pawn to kick away this knight. He has only one square to go, and that is
f3. We will push him back further by attacking
the knight with our central pawn this time. Now the best move for white here is to actually
take this knight back to g1. But most average players don’t like to do
that. So the only other option he has is to move
it to h4. He might look to bring his knight here so
let’s block off this square by moving our king. If you see now, this knight has no where to move. So a simple pawn move like this, would get it. If he understands what you are trying to do,
then he will look to free up this square for his knight. But there is a trick here as well. In case he plays g3, and after we attack with
our pawn, he will move his knight back to g2. But to his surprise, we have this deadly move,
bishop to G4. Believe it or not, his queen is trapped. Even if he blocks with this pawn, it will
be of no use. So this again lands you in a very commanding position
from where you can easily win this game. Going back, in this position, like I told
you, taking the knight back to g1 is actually the best move for white. But even if he plays this, you still have
quite a good position. Most of your pieces are active & can be developed
quickly whereas, even though white is a pawn up, all his pieces are still on the back rank
& he is way behind in development. So this should still be quite a good game
for you. Now Let’s come to the big question. How should you play this as white. How to prevent yourself from getting trapped? Well, let’s look at this position on the board. Instead of pushing this pawn forward, the
best move will be to attack this knight by playing pawn to c3. For black, Knight to f5 is a good move because
now if the pawn advances, the knight can take it & guard this weak f7 square as well. So all in all, if you look at this position,
it’s not a bad position for black, but white has a slight advantage. Nevertheless, this trick is definitely worth
trying out in your games. Okay, so It’s puzzle time. But Before moving onto today’s chess puzzle,

  1. Great video!!! Here's my opinion on the puzzle:
    White Rook to a5 attacking the bishop, Black moves bishop to e8, preventing a Mate in 1 by the rook, White still checks Black with his rook to h5, Black takes the rook with his bishop and White then checkmates Black by advancing his pawn to g5.

  2. Answer:
    White Black
    Ra5 Be8
    g5+ Kh5
    g6+ Kh6
    g7 Bf7
    Rh5+ Bxh5 (Kxh5
    Kxf7 Kg7
    g8=queen)
    …..
    g8=queen
    And white will win. Nice video. Thnx

  3. The best move for white is to pawn g5 check king is forced to h5 and we attack the pawn with are rook and check and again forced to g4 we can attack bishop by playing rook h5 and push are pawn

  4. 1 Ra5 Be8 any ather move is 2 Rh5#. 2 G5+ only move is … Kh5 3 G6 dosn't mater if Kh4 or Kg4 4 g7 and now it's helpless for black.

  5. Wouldn’t the more realistic move for white bishops be to move to f5 and not g6 to endanger it by the e5 Knight? (3:42)

  6. Are you aware that you’ve confused the queen with the king? How does a pro make a mistake like that 🤔

  7. white moves pawn to g5 check, black king to h4,, white rook captures the black pawn and check and then white can promote pawn to queen

  8. You are like a master sir i like your moves so amizing make more video sir thanks.i like your move very much wonderful

  9. My fried looks like tired of your moves so kidding my friend said he like your moves and he said can you teach me more master

  10. 1) rook to a5 targeting the bishop.

    black moves its bishop as thats the only powerful piece in the borad

    2) rook to h5 checkmate

  11. I am new for this channel.
    White Rook moves to A2
    And black Bishop moves anyware we don't care
    Then Rook moves to H8
    And it's check mate
    I hope you should understand what I am saying.
    I like your way of talking

  12. 1. Pawn to g5 check. Only move king to h5.
    2. Rook to a5 attacking bishop. Bishop to d3 good move.
    3.pawn g6 discovered attack by rook. And pawn promotion next.. Am I right?

  13. white should move his pawn to g5 then king have to go to h5 where rook can easily check mate him by moving to h7

  14. THANK YOU. I was just waiting for this position and it worked against a 1400 Lichess player. I like the way you said if he does this "Then H'e's Gone" made you sound like a Mafia Don…

  15. Nice to see your channel is getting more popular. Keep up the good work! And don't be afraid to remind us to like and subscribe! It's obviously working!

  16. Rock to a5 is best move the black has to move it's bishop then move your pawn to g5 giving a cheak to black king then black king has to move on h5 then move your pawn to g6

  17. White rook to a5 . Moving the rook away. Pawn to g5 checking the king. Black king comes to h5 only place left. Then pawn to g6 checking from rook. Which leads to develop white queen.

  18. Moving rook to a-5.if we play this he have to save his bishop then he will move his bishop to e-2.after his move we can keep are rook to h-6 and is a beautiful checkmate

  19. @ 3:40 what to do if bishop c4 is play instead of bishop b3, not sure how to proceed after this, my best guess is to kick whites knight away on g5

  20. "Hello friends, mera naam hain jeetendra aap dekh rahe ho chess talk, to chaliye shuru karte hain!! "
    Hindi translation 😂😂🤣

  21. WHITE BLACK

    1.g5 check BLACK KING ONLY MOVE IS TO
    h5
    2.King to f5 BLACK KING ONLY MOVES TO
    h4
    3Rooks takes h7 is a beatiful checkmate

  22. My opinion is to first move the pawn to g5 then black king to g5 and rook to a5 then black bishop c6 than pawn to g6 and make the pawn queen by protecting it by king

  23. After the black QC6 then the white castling. what is the best move next? May opponent is a chess champion computer the last level and i can't win every matches because he can attack and defense perfectly. 😓

  24. Your videos are beautiful..you should have seen my friend's face when I trapped the queen with my bishop..thanks for the priceless videos

  25. Good video by advani, and my opinion is White moves rook a5, then black moves his bishop to e2 to taking Pawan, then white his rook moves to h5 it's bueatifull checkmate. Otherwise black moves (after withe) his bishop to e8 , white h5, black moves bishop to h5, then white pawn moves g5

  26. Here's my answer first rook a5 after that bishop will move to e8 which prevents a checmate trail in the next move but after that move you're rook to h5 and then bishop will capture and then you can simply checkmate black by advancing youre poon to g5…..
