In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov shares with you a really powerful chess opening trap for White which happens in the Bishop’s Gambit variation of the King’s Gambit Accepted: 1.e4 e5 2.f4 exf4 (The King’s Gambit Accepted) 3.Bc4.

White allows 3…Qh4+ 4. Kf1. White lost the possibility to castle, but the king is safe on f1 and White can gain several tempi on the Black queen, for example with Nf3. The famous Immortal Game started with this line.

White’s plan is usually to develop quickly and start an attack on the kingside using the half-open f-file and the bishop on c4.

The core idea of this trap is similar to that of the one in the Bishop’s Opening – White targets the f7-square, taking aim at the Black’s king. When Black tries to dominate, their queen gets trapped.
