In today’s chess video, we’ll look at
some amazing opening tricks for black when We start with e4, e5, knight f3, knight c6
& then bishop c4. This is the Italian game, probably the most
common opening setup you will ever see. After this, we play bishop c5 & now white
has a couple of options – he can play c3 & attack the center. Or he can simply castle and safeguard his
king. Another popular move is d3, defending the
pawn & opening up this diagonal for the bishop. And this is what we want him to play. Because after that, we have this tricky little
move, pawn to f5. It’s called the Lucchini gambit. From here, white plays knight g5 preparing
a fried liver type of attack. But we just push this pawn – cutting off
the bishop & attacking the knight. He plays knight f7, as expected, & starts
celebrating because he is forking the queen And the rook. But hold on, we have this sneaky little queen
h4. Now if he’s not careful & takes the rook,
then he can pack his bags and go home, because Queen f2 is simply game over. Therefore, he cannot take the rook. So, if he wants to prevent this checkmate,
then castling would seem the most obvious Response. But after knight f6, our rook is now free
to move, so white has to take it. We advance further, and look at this – in
just 8 moves, we have so many deadly attacks Around the king. In fact, Queen h2 is threatening a checkmate. So, the best way to defend is to go for h3. But then we have this nasty knight, taking
on f2. This queen is under attack so, if he takes,
we take back with our queen. If he goes to the corner, we push this pawn
to open up the king. He can capture in two ways, but none of them
work. His queen is helpless, it cannot take because
we have this queen g1 checkmate. And if he takes with the pawn, then we have
d5, which not only attacks his bishop, but Also, activates our bishop. As you can see, we are just crushing it with
all these mating tactics and there’s no Way he can save this game.

Going back, let’s look at another interesting
line. So, rook takes, queen takes. And now instead of moving to the corner, what
if the king goes to h2? Well, then again, we have d5. Bishop takes & now comes the absolutely mindblowing
move, bishop to g4. Look, the queen is under attack & unfortunately,
it cannot leave the first rank because we Still have this queen g1 checkmate. And if you are thinking of taking with the
pawn, then believe it or not, queen h4 is Another crushing checkmate! Okay, let’s go back again. Now in this position, you might think – instead
of taking with the rook, what if he simply Moves his queen? Well, then just look at this beautiful line! Knight h3 double check, king h1 or h2, doesn’t
matter. Then again, knight f2 double check. King g1 is forced. And finally, queen h1 is an absolutely stunning
checkmate! On that note, my absolutely stunning audience,
do show some love and hit the like button Below! Alright, let’s go back to this position! We have this checkmate threat & I just showed
you how white is completely destroyed after Castling, but what if he plays g3? Well, we have some traps here as well. First, let’s save our queen. Now white is out of danger, so he’ll take
the rook. And again, we have the same idea – first
push d5, and then bring out the bishop to Attack the queen. If he blocks, we’ll just ignore this threat
& take the g pawn. Bishop sacrifice & we simply push g2. This pawn is now unstoppable & the rook cannot
escape. Even if it moves here, we simply take it with
the bishop. And if the king moves out of the way & tries
to run, we have all these different attacks So he won’t survive long. Okay, now in this position, instead of blocking
this threat, even if he moves his queen away,

You can bring in your knight into action & we’re
ready to pounce on him from all directions. We have this royal fork lined up, queen g2
is another option to invade white’s kingside & of course, both these bishops can jump in
anytime to finish off the king. So basically, it’s all over for white. Guys, I have some more tricks to show you
for black & we’ll look at some interesting Ideas for white as well. But before moving on, I would like to thank

so far. So, after the Italian opening, we play bishop
c5 & then f5. We’ve seen 7 match-winning traps where white
tries to attack with his knight. The main ideas you need to keep in mind are
– to push f4, attack with your queen, get This knight out, play d5, activate this light-square
bishop. And if required, bring in this knight as well. Now these traps can be used when he gets his
knight to f7. What if after f4, he gives a check with the
bishop? Well, then we’ll play king f8. This knight is still in danger – he can’t
move it because then he simply loses his bishop.

And if he decides to exchange, you won’t
take the bishop, instead just capture his Knight & after the bishop runs away, you just
destroy his kingside. The engine gives almost a 4 point advantage
to black here. Anyway, in this position, a more logical response
from white would be to defend the knight with Something like queen h5 or even h4. If queen h5, then you can push him back this
way & slowly develop all your pieces. And if he defends with h4, you attack the
knight again. And after the dust settles, you end up with
an extra pawn. Of course, you cannot castle, but you are
much better developed with all these attacking Options. The engine gives black a 2.5 point advantage. Alright, let’s go back. Now here some of you might be wondering what
if he does not make any of these moves & simply Accepts this gambit? In that case, you’ll first grab the center
& at some point, you will pick up this pawn As well. Anyway, now this bishop is under attack, so
moving it to b5 seems most logical because It pins our knight. And therefore, he threatens to take this pawn. But you have a clever idea here as well. Instead of saving this pawn, you’ll look
to castle as soon as possible. Therefore, knight e7, white captures & then
short castle. Now after castling, we’ve unpinned our knight
so white’s got to do something. Most likely, he’ll take with the knight
& we’ll recapture with the pawn. He needs to save his bishop so he goes back. And now again, you have a brilliant tactical
idea. Can you find it? Look, we’ve already castled & all our pieces
are ready to advance. On the other hand, white has zero development. So, what do we do? Well, we’ll sac our bishop and expose the
king. White has to take and finally we pick up this
pawn. From here, the main idea is to get your queen
out quickly & advance with all these pieces To target the vulnerable king.

Now even though black is down in material,
white is way behind in development and therefore, The engine gives black a massive 4.5 point
advantage. After looking at all these deadly traps, you
might ask – Jeetendra, is there any way To even play this as white? Well, let’s start from the beginning. E4, e5, knight f3, knight c6, and bishop c4. Oh, by the way, there are different move orders
to transpose into the Lucchini gambit. For example, here instead of bishop c5, you
can straightaway play f5. This is the Rousseau Gambit. Now if he takes the pawn, you have e4 & this
knight is forced to move again. Therefore, instead of taking the pawn, more
often than not, white will defend with d3. And as you can see, we reach the very same
position as the Lucchini gambit. Now as white, when you see this opening – it
feels like black has made some kind of a mistake. That’s why you try to launch an early attack
& you try to punish him immediately. But I feel the best approach for white is
to just be patient. Instead of reacting to black’s unusual moves,
White should just castle & develop his pieces Normally. And if white is playing that way, you should
also do the same as black. Just simply activate all your minor pieces. Now as black, here comes a point, where you
want to castle, but because of this bishop, You are not able to. That’s when you can play knight a5. This bishop has no squares left. And even if he tries to exchange this knight,
you have this c6 move & eventually this bishop Will fall. According to stockfish, this is dead equal
at the moment. So even if white plays this perfectly, you
still have a good chance of winning this as Black. Alright, so its puzzle time. In this position, it is white’s turn, and
you need to find the best move continuation For white. Do share your answers in the comments section
