Basic Opening Chess Traps | Sicilian Defence | 8-year-old boy learning from his mistakes

When we begin playing an opening we often make mistakes and fall into a trap. When that happens we start disliking that opening and have bad memories attached to it. But that’s not how things should be. The ideal way is to learn from your losses and mistakes and come up with improvement and new ideas. Check out this video by IM Sagar Shah where he talks about the story of the 8-year-old boy and how he followed his father’s advice in spite of repeated failures!
