Chess Openings- Albin Counter Gambit

In the Albin Counter Gambit, black aggressively tries to undermine the center control of white’s opening of the queen’s gambit line. If white is not careful he can fall into man traps, including the Lasker Trap which has an underpromotion as early as move 7. With correct play white can keep his advantage in the Albin Counter Gambit but if white is not well versed in this opening then black can not only equalize but have a winning game.
