Basic Chess Opening Trap | How Garry Kasparov lost in 7 moves | Queen’s Gambit Accepted

Garry Kasparov is widely known as an opening expert in the world of chess. So it is very surprising that he could fall into an opening trap and lose his game in just 7 moves. The defence that can be used here is that Kasparov is out of touch and hence fell into the trap. However, things are a little deeper than that. Mamedyarov played a line which is not so well known. IM Sagar Shah decodes this basic opening trap in the Queen’s Gambit Accepted.
