1. Chess traps trailer: I come back again? I will teach you how to play. Chess is back with some crazy, dirty, cheap opening tricks and I will show you how to avoid them. I'll show you how to play them and I will show you what is best to play against this certain opening and my kitten won't help me. I have to do this all on my own. But I hope you will be here. So the opening will look like this. It starts with E four 85 and the queen goes to H five. So this is what we have to take care off and I will show you how to do this. Also have a little bonus video. How to make the notation that I would get Bragg notation chess notation Best see you after the enrollment. 2. The Patzer Opening Trap Part 1: right, let's do this the less in the opening e four e five and Queen H five. So this is the opening, which is achieved after White's second move only, and since there are only two moves involved, it is very hard to claim a name for it. So it ISS called or it's known this opening because openings have names. That's how to try to get different openings. As you can see here, my gosh, and this is not even half of the existing openings, I can tell you anyway. This opening is known as the par Ham Attack, the Queen's Attack, the Danvers opening the Kentucky opening and old Soul and is my favorite name. So I will call it like this. The PA TSA opening and apart TSA is a word coming from Germany, once again coming from pots in to bungle. And it's more or less a slang for a beginner in chess who tends to make mistakes. So that's not a good sign of this is called pots opening, but nonetheless ah, it is an amateur opening and, uh, mostly from and against chess players who have just begun playing chess. Just maybe, like you because there's some traps involved to win a rule or even checkmate the king. No, I don't worry. It's all gonna be fine. Nonetheless, a couple of years ago was Ah, there was this Grand Master and he still is chess Grandmaster He Caro Nakamura from the USA . As his name states well, he's considered one of the best, if not even the best blitz chess player in the world. Blitz traces five minute tempo chess, and he has played this opening in several games and had a pretty solid result overall. So it might be playable enough enough to get a good composition blitz chess game. And I mean, of course, he's a grandmaster and he's just playing awesome. But fair enough. Enough of the talking. Let's get into this opening. So we have this position, and as you can see, um, I swapped the board. So we're playing black now. And if you have seen my previous I will teach you how to play chess with you. You might remember the story where I was talking about a school friend wanting to play chess against me. Well, apparently that was the opening I fell for because I haven't seen it before. I thought like, Wow, this is a queen there. What does she want? Their Get out of the way, Queen. I will attack you. What? An amateur opening. What a pots are opening. I will play. No, I didn't play that What I played was this the poem to G six? Yeah. Get out of our put parts here. We don't want to. Your all right? All right. I will go. No check Check on e five with not only taking my pawn and giving a check, but also taking my poor ruegen the next move. So if I move my queen two e seven to defend block, that's almost the game or it's almost game over. If you want to call it like this, don't do that. Amateur opening pots opening. This is from the white side. This is what whites waiting for. Tiny mistake like this. Goodie! But let's not do this. Let's do something else instead and I will show you in the next Listen, how white cannot Onley when a rukh but can checkmate the king. I thought we're not doing this. Well, we have to at one point. Ah 3. The Patzer Opening Trap Part 2: All right. So we know now we should move this pawn forward instead. We should try to protect our hanging pound Now, on how to protect him. We cannot protect him like this because it's it. Directly. Check here. Right. So we cannot even touch this poem. Kind off. But how about and this is very common. Um, how about we just move the night to see six to protect the poem? That's very common. And it's actually very suggestible opening. So White wants to continue with the trap because he thinks, like, he might have a big advantage here. And we will play the bishop to C four. All right. And now the mistake happens. Black things Okay? My, my Parness protected. I will just get rid of this queen now because I don't want the queen here. Yeah! Get out of the way, Queen. I can take you like the What are you doing? Checkmate. Protected by the bishop. Terrible. Terrible mistake, Putzer. That is how you checkmate the king. So let's Teoh turn around the board and look around. Look at it from the other side. So you get this. So here's the queen we protect upon with the night the bishop comes to see four. We falsely attacked the Queen. The queen cannot go here, of course, and it's been attacked. But how about we just check, mate? The king? Odd herds. Why did you do this night? Because you said you don't want the queen here. That's what happens when you don't want the queen here. All right, um, eso don't move your night out here with this terrible threat. Um, but no, for example. Well, this is the situation right now. We can, of course, easily pushed upon forward because you can't take back. So let's continue a bit in. Let's go a bit crazy again. The queen moves back here. All right. Now, don't make something like this year Bishop to C five, for example, because there is the check made again. Ah, what would be possible here, or much better is, for example, to be very secure, swapped the queen's or just put the knight to F six. This will also hold because the queen protects. And if stuff like this is happening, he tries to get the bishop here. We can either go here or here. Here might be a bit better and then securely, Castle. So all threats are gone for No, But you always have to be a bit careful with stuff like this. All right. Okay, so So this move is actually one of the most secure moves. Andi, people state. This is the best way to continue. And this is why this opening off white isn't that strong? Well, but yeah, depends. It really depends. Um, duh. Now let's move the queen away further. One more time with one last threat. But then it's really enough. Can you spot it already? Yeah. So the queen protects the bishop, and the bishop can take this pawn over here. Eso this could be prevented with Queenie. Seven easily right. Protecting her. But ah, Now let's do something interesting. So pay good attention here. Let's punish the pot, sir. A bit more by moving the night to d four. Hey, that rhymes. So it's really, really good the night to D for attacking the queen. Well, but isn't this terrible check here? Let's try it out. Check. Well, at least the king can go to e seven. He can take back, of course, but he's not checkmate as he would be when the White Queen would be on f seven. Um, the queen cannot hold on to the bishop anymore. And this is the whole trick about this situation. And ah, Black will win a piece now because if the queen still dares to hold on with moving Ah, let's say here this the last spot you can't she can't go here because there's the night. And here, of course not. Because here's the pond. So if the queen goes like, I will protect you, um, before will happen, be five will happen next and every resistance is now broken Because if a check will occur here, for example, or here it doesn't matter. I will go out of the check and Tech, take the Bishop. And now it looks very, very good for black. So it's like an anti Putzer moving. Isn't this funny? It's like I played this against my check A chess computer. Pretty often this exact position here, I thought, and the computer didn't allow me to take, so he went with the queen here but this back then. But this is so much stronger. It's a real trap. I mean, why it isn't serious problems here. Check. Oh, let's go here. That is very unfortunate. Maybe a check here. Down we go with the bishop. So, uh, not to get annulled the details, but be aware of those two mean traps. Also, when you play them yourself, cause you should give it a try at least. 4. The Kiddie Countergambit: All right. So what would be the best response? And ah, this is a bit more advanced, but I will try to keep it a simple is possible. So we still have. Ah, the idea of Grand Master Nakamura. And he was asked what is the best response against Queen H four on Dhere admitted night to have six. Interesting. So we just give away upon in the first move with the check. All right, fair enough. Um, by the way, I searched in the internet. And this this move knight to f six. It's also an opening and scold the kitty count. True gambit. The kitty counter can be so well, everybody can now play. The parts are opening and the kitty counter gambit against it. When you play on lunches, there are a lot of players trying to win quickly against you with the Queen H five little Do they know you're prepared to counter attack brutally with this move and without them knowing what even hit them. So most players will say I'm numb numb. Take this pond to this move and happily when the pond with a check. So how can this be a good advantage we play Bishop to E seven, which prepares a casting, and White has a lot of options now, so it's very unclear how to what to do best. But if White moves the queen to F four, it's claimed the best move for Black, and it gives a very interesting game, but mostly, and especially in a quick paced game, like a blitz game or something, this won't be the move considered easily. So, um, let's move on with, for example, night to see three to protect this poem we castle on diff, for example, King Night F three is the next move right to just advance the pieces of it. Ah, the plan moves further up. By the way, this is the castle. So the ruckus here now rook to e eight, and that is the main idea. So after the bishop moves away, this powerful Rukh here not only attacks the opponents queen, but also this vulnerable pone and much worse, the White King. So this is a very tactical move. It's a good move, which gives a lot of advantage, an open line for the Rukh. And at this point, if my opponent is a weaker player, it often happens he is losing either a piece or his queen. Whites turn d three. We're opening up the line with D five. Another risky move. But if he takes the poem and this can be done in a fast game, we have the day direct threat by playing the bishop to be four. Ouch! Why? Just lost his precious queen. Oh, no. Because queen can't be moved anywhere else. Ah, except maybe taking away the rule car. Something like this big, big, big disadvantage for for white. So, um, there's nothing to put it being in between. And, um, that's not that's not a good thing. Ah, let's take him with the night, for example. That shouldn't be a problem. Ah, but then we give a check with the bishop immediately. Because now the night moved away. What a pity. So if I take back bomb, the queen has gone again, and this is again a huge advantage for black. So anyway, the motive is clear about this. We will swap this around so you see from both angles. Oh, it flip the board. The motive is clear around this. So how how did we how did to play. So the kitty counter Gabby Bush, Wong and weep. See? And did she So this is a real castling. How the kitten. Sorry, I'm not that concentrated because the kitten is just sliding down my leg. Poor thing. And this why he sleep while he's sleeping and the route here. So we give away the poem, we castle and bash the route to this opening line with the king and bash forward with a lot of aces and our sleeves. So, just in case you are white, play the queen to F four and after black castles and takes a very good care to protect your queen and the palm. Uh, try to castle quickly, and, um, yeah, it should be pretty equal. Black has to build up a lot of traps. Yeah, but this is how it should be done. Okay, that is it for this lesson. How to play with queen age for the Patzer opening and the kitty counter Gumby. Andi, I see you for the next opening Traps lesson soon. Bye bye. 5. Bonus Course - Notation: on. And here we are, starting with the bonus lesson, because in the very first I will teach you how to play chess video. I was just giving you some basics of how the bonus of how the notation is working. And now it will go a bit deeper into this. So you don't have to this anymore because it's pretty boring. But you have to go through this. It's part of chess. Anyway, Here we are chessboard on. This is the first time I will use some chess notation expressions. So I will go quickly through them. Ah, through this exercise and the more you make the moves anymore, play chess. The better you will get with the notation, of course. So the rules for the notation are simple. First, you use the name of the peace Rukh Knight, Bishop, Queen King. But sometimes also the pawn. But normally not. But you use this as the first letter. Second, you use the letter down here. One of this and the third rule is you use the number so all combined would be night to if three for example Ah, And for the pond, we rarely use the letter so It's simply known as the landing square. So if you move the pawn to E four, it would be e for Kitten. Don't scratch my, uh, sofa P parts, please. And now he's on my lap. Well, all right. And here we are. So we have the notation here again on the left side. I will keep this up and I will play a game with you, which should cover everything for the whole notation on the very first move in the written language in the written algebraic notation is before e four. So far, so good and ah, black will make its move ive five. So this is the first move. This is number one because it's also the first move for black simply like this on the second move. And this is the actual trap, which we will come to in this whole lesson is Queen Que two age five. And, um, now black could move the night to see six. And the third move could be the shop to be five and bishop to C five from black. Okay, so far, so good, right? It's pretty easy to understand, So let's get some action going on. I will take a piece. Yeah, it's your turn to die. Wow. Dude, please relax. Yeah, Makes me scared. You won't say anything anymore. Boom! The bishop! A kitten. Stop it, please. Kitten jumps against my microphone. The bishop takes C six and this looks like this Be cross C six. All right. So the X is the piece which will be captured and black captures back with the d pone not with the B pawn. All right, De takes c six. So we know how to take a piece now, So we will do this again. Queen takes e five, but halt. There is even more. The queen also gives a check to the king. So it is cute. Takes e five check, which is cross on dumb. How to avoid this So difficult like this? Probably Queen Black moves Queen to e seven also, um, protects the bishop. It doesn't matter. I will just play crazy moves now to get to some more action. Knight to F three. Let's move the bishop to G four for no. And it is time for a new move. The castling phone. That's how the casting looks like zero minus zero. Oops. And for the long casting. It's different. It's zero minus zero minus zero. A rose is a rose is a rose. Don't ask me why I didn't even look it up. I don't know. That's how it's done, All right, so time for some special notation and we're going even more crazy. All right, so let's see. What did I have in mind here as the next move? Oh, I'm I'm further. I have to take a look here. So now, for some mystic reason, Whyte's plays the pawn to a four and black response with the route to E eight, and the white pawn moves even further. And then suddenly, black moves to be five. We have this rare case. It's not that rare, but we have the chance to take the peace via own Paulson, and this is what we're doing. Bloom is gone, and this is how it looks like. It is actually a takes B six not be five, although there was upon, of course, but just imagine, the prawn would be year. So this is how we take it, another special notation, but it keeps on Let's go to a five with black for some reason and give a check here with B seven and the king, he will just go to de eight. Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? And here I can move my palm to the last roll which will grant me to exchange it into one of my favorite pieces of all time. The Queen. And this is how it looks like It's an equal sign. Or you can just even let the equal son be an equal sign and just go for the coup. But unequal is a bit more precise. Ah, Luckily, there is this Bishop which can move in between two. C eight now we go for night C three and the next move is the doom off Black Queen to e six . And we put if it would be a deeper analyzers and we would check out the game how it went. If this move would have been played Queen to e six, we could even make two question marks behind it. Because this is the move which ends the game, because this is checkmate. It doesn't even matter which queen. But we will take the queen from the fifth role and not from the eighth row. All right, So if there's two happens very often that two routes are on one row and, um, sometimes one of them moves to If this this ah, bishop wouldn't be there, the A rook moves to see one. So it would be our A C one. And in this case, it would be our f to see one. The same applies here with the queen. So it would be Queen E to see seven. But we can also write Queen Five to see seven. Makes it a bit more comfy to look at, and it's checkmate. It's over. You have lost, sir. Thanks to your queen. Thank you for the message. That's the notation that is the basic. So did we cover everything here? Probably not, but almost everything. Anything you I will teach you in my newer chest videos and now enjoy the chest traps.
