92 ( +1 | -1 ) The Fried Liver AttackHello folks! Here we will talk about a variation of the Two Knights Defense: The fried liver attack!
It goes: 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Nf6 4. Ng5!? chesskids.com/kids/class6.htm has more info.
To start with: I also want to look at one of my games, and one trap.
See gameknot.com/chess.pl?bd=1413404&r=777 for one of my brilliant games.
Here's a trap: Known as the COPYCAT TRAP!
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nf6?! (The Russian Game) 3. Nxe5 Nxe4?? Very Bad. Better is 3...d6 followed by 4. Nxe4. Anyway: 4. Qe2! Nf6 (or d6) 5. Nc6+ winning Black's Queen. 5...Qe7 is met by 6. Nxe7. Back to the position after 4. Qe2, if Black tries 4...d5 to defend the knight, then white has 5. d3 and if the knight moves, then 6. Nc6+ winning the Black Queen. So after 3. Nxe5 DO NOT play 3...Nxe4! Play 3...d6 then 4. Nxe4. OK?
42 ( +1 | -1 ) Fried Liver Attackis not 4.Ng5 (that doesn't deserve the !? mark, since it's the normal move, not an interesting variation), but 6.Nxf7 (after of course 4...d5 5.exd5 Nxd5). Anyway, 6.Nxf7 deserves a ?!, while much better is 6.d4 followed by 7.Nxf7.
Your Russian Trap: 3...Nxe4 is not ??, since after 4.Qe2 Qe7 White gets only a slight plus. So after 4.Nxe5 play ...Nxe4 if you like to go out of the book paying a low price.
14 ( +1 | -1 ) Traxler/Wilkes-BarreIf you like your chess to be exciting, I recommend this opening. 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Nf6 4. Ng5 Bc5!? Black ignores the attack on f7 by counterattacking on f2, often saccing his KR in the process.
