Basic Opening Chess Trap | Cochrane Gambit in the Petroff

The Petroff can be a very dull and boring opening for the White player to face. But you can spice up the things by going for the Cochrane Gambit. How does the Cochrane Gambit work? IM Sagar Shah tells you all about it from a story in 2012 where he helped his wife Amruta win a crucial game at the National Championships! Enjoy this fun trap!

  28. Bro you don't go f3 to win back the knight, but play Bg5+ and win the Queen lol
