Basic Opening Chess Trap | Sicilian Kan | The wife strikes again!

Sagar Shah’s wife Amruta Mokal is an excellent Sicilian player – specifically the Sicilian Kan. She loves to play that opening and has been playing it all her life. So when Sagar decided to take her on in her opening, it was clear that he was treading on thin ice! As expected he blundered out of the opening! He lost a piece and the game but got the content for this episode of Basic Opening Chess Traps!


  1. On a lighter note, It looks like you are making up with Amruta for having fought with her. Ha Ha Ha. Thats why you resigned. It was a playable position ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. This is Sagar Bhai playing bad against Amrita Tai. ๐Ÿ˜

  3. I was looking for a line AGAINST the sicilian kan but now I just might start playing it. Love your enthousiasm!

  4. Sagar bhai,
    I disagree. Bishop takes C3 is the correct recommended move by Stock-fish. D5 doesn't seem to be the best position in this move. Please check this. I think the reason is Bishop takes C3 instead of the D5 move, white pawn structure destroyed with doubled pawn on C3. Queen goes to C3 giving a fake fork to king and Rook with check. Black Bishop defends the check as queen cannot (which will lose the rook) so we get a free knight on D4. White king can also defend the check with F2 or E2 but most humans may not play this, its natural to defend the check with bishop or Queen. This is a more logical line which is in line with the engine's thinking also. I think the reason stock fish disagrees with your logic that knight pins the king is because you can do a simple short castle here unpinning the knight easily and avoid a pawn pin. However, if Amruta is smiling big time after D5, then we can throw stock fish away ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Aree koi btana yai game mai jo arrow sai predict kartai hai move kya wo phone mai hota hai

  6. 4:07 'I learnt a lesson from my wife,this is sagar shah signing of bye bye' this line was hilarious and was a like a rhyme when sagar sir spoke it

  8. Thank you so much sir.Promoting each other ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… nice way to generate more viewers…

  9. Is it really a trap I think it's all best move not fishing any greedy move

  10. Sir ,

    Why after the move d5
    Can't white play e5
    Pushing the โ™Ÿ๏ธ??

  11. Sagar Shah proving he can "actually" improve your chess. If you know, you know ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. I believe be3 comes in bastrikov variation of taimanov, Also English attack is exclusive for Najdorf, If you want to refer to the idea of be3, qd2 and long castle it also comes in Yugoslav attack and something that I can't remember atm.

  13. My favourite trap is d4 e5(Scandinavian) dxe4 bc5 Nf3 d6 exd6 Ne7 dxe7 Bxf2+ kxf2 Qxd1 wins the queen ๐Ÿ˜€ Sagar sir make a vid on this please LIKE so they do ๐Ÿ˜€

  14. Why didn't you play e5 after d5? It's true that you will lose a pawn(after taking with the queen)but everything is safe now.

  15. Good Sagar Shah, small videos are always interesting and attractive. Thanks!
