In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov will share with you one of the best chess openings that you can use when playing Internet blitz games. It is the Blackmar–Diemer Gambit, which follows the move order: 1.d4 d5 2.e4.

At first, it may seem like a not so sound idea for White, but when you’re playing online chess (blitz games) in order to win the game, you need to create problems for your opponent. Even the world champion, Magnus Carlsen, says “People crack under pressure… you’ve got to create those problems for your opponents”.

And one of the best ways for you to create such problems for your opponent early on in the game is to play a gambit. Because gambits always give you an extra tempo for development as well as a bunch of open lines and diagonals, which you can later use to attack your opponent.

In the following video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov has also explained the Halosar Trap from this gambit, which follows this move order: 1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.f3 exf3 5.Qf3.

  1. That's the thing about tricky gambits youtubers will post them up thinking they'll get veiws and tell people that these traps will be work fantastic if your opponents just plays natural book moves what they don't realise is that some patzers who don't even have proper tactical accumen to defend their position just memorise these traps and claim themselves to know the certain opening what these patzers don't understand is that they only know a trappy line of the opening and since they just memorise it they don't really build up their understanding and when someone plays a classical lines with them they just crumble into pieces trappy lines are not starters to the main course it's the sweet desert after u learn all the technicalities in an opening

  2. courageous and inspiring opening gambits concealing overwhelming precision surprise; makes chess the game it is. what else you got

  3. What if queen goes on e5 after we put bishop on e3?

  4. Dangerous move. Need bravery to do that…

  5. I need help, I want to counter my friends opening but I don’t know how. First he opens pawn B3 then after that bishop B2. Is there any way I can infiltrate with knight with him opening like that?

  6. Loved this Gambit. Will try it out. Just amazed at how vast and Beautiful Chess is

  7. In 9:01 after taking Na6 by queen.if bishop cross d1 define the continuevesen

  8. What if black was to play b4 instead of playing g4 how do we go on bout that as the white player

  9. Yesterday against 1600 player I won using this trap. Worth playable

  10. What if the queen just goes back home after you threaten her with the bishop?

  11. My answer was Qxc7, if black takes back with Nxc7 then white delievers checkmate by Nxc7.

  12. 3:10 wouldn’t black attack the queen using bishop protected by knight?

  13. Just played a same move after watching video.and it was the best ever gameplay for mistake ,no inaccuracy , no blunder ,thnk you sir..

  14. What is the name of the opening gambit you showed

  15. I don't understand why there is an assumption that Queen is just going to allow Knight to saunter from B5 to C7. If I was black and I saw Knight @ B5. I would be killing it immediately.

  16. Answer: 1Q-f2 BxR, 2B-c5+ K-d7, 3BxQ KxN, 4BxB RxB, 5 KxB. What's the score? White has a queen against a rook and a pawn. Black could also give up his queen for the the checking bishop.

  17. their was also a checkmate with qc6
    that one was shorter how come you didnt execute that one. It was when blacks rook moved to to threaten the queen

  18. You could be grand master, for beginars, not professional players, for learners.

  19. 8:54 What about Qxc7, Nxc7, then your knight captures on c7 and its checkmate? (Well only if you opponent is stupid)

  20. Thank you for your teaching I will use them. I am enjoying your youtube

  21. These vids are absolutely amazing, thank you!!

  22. Great video!! How's Minecraft these days? 😆

  23. The frequency of adverts is just too painful and ruins my concentration.

  24. Les Blancs ont gagné, car les Noirs ont fait une erreur : f6.
    En pratique, un joueur ne joue pas de cette façon.

  25. B e3 then surely Bg4 – Black keeps its two pawns advantage.

  26. Loved you explanation.
    Btw Minecraft ID?

  27. And just a side note – QxB looks like it works, but you have to calculate a move or 2 deeper to see that at the end black's N can take white's B on e3. If that wasn't the case, then if white played QxB would work b/c if QxQ then white plays Bc5 mate, and if NxQ, then Nd5 check, forking black's K and Q. But unfortunately, black then plays NxB on e3 and turns out to be an even material swap, although black is worse due to white having either a discovered check if black K moves to the d-file, or only other squares are light, so if goes to e8 white can check with Bb5 and has strong initiative, but if Ke6, black's N on e3 covers the c4 square, so white can't check and he loses his initiative, although still has decent position.

  28. Everytime after I watch a Video of yoirs i play a brilliamt chess game❤️

  29. Why would anybody play Queen B2? All my opponents just stayed in the D column to prevent me from casteling
