Chess Traps- Mortimer Trap

The Mortimer Trap comes from the berlin chess defense when white responds with d3. This is not the most common move in the berlin defense for white but many players still prefer this over the common 0-0 (castling) for white. After d3, black gives up a pawn on e5 as a trap and looks to regain more material by taking either the bishop or the knight a few moves later.
