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
