Quick K.O.'s / Opening Traps
Compiled by LIFE Master AJ
--*--

This is a collection of all the neat little opening traps that I run across. I definitely want these to be simple, 10-15 moves in length ... at the most. (Please drop me a note if you know of any.)

A fast 1-0 in the Smith-Morra Gambit.
D Zardus vs A Steventon, 1986 
(B21) Sicilian, 2.f4 and 2.d4, 7 moves, 1-0

A neat way to win in the Ruy Lopez.
B Wall vs J Chance, 1969 
(C70) Ruy Lopez, 9 moves, 1-0

A neat mate in the Scandinavian.
L Ingram vs A McDonald, 2009 
(B01) Scandinavian, 9 moves, 1-0

The first trap to learn in the Q.G.D.
S Lemieux vs D Feoktistov, 2001 
(D51) Queen's Gambit Declined, 6 moves, 0-1

A quickie in the Englund Gambit.

Nice trap in the Trompowski's Opening.
S Terentiev vs J Gallagher, 1990 
(A45) Queen's Pawn Game, 22 moves, 0-1

For big, bad, Petro ... eight is enough.
Petrosian vs H Ree, 1971 
(A29) English, Four Knights, Kingside Fianchetto, 8 moves, 1-0

A nice trap in the Sicilian, its not in many books!
A J Goldsby vs E Jonsson, 1980 
(B67) Sicilian, Richter-Rauzer Attack, 7...a6 Defense, 8...Bd7, 18 moves, 1-0

White gets knocked out ... well before move 10!
Venert vs V Mechkarov, 1970 
(A50) Queen's Pawn Game, 6 moves, 0-1

White loses the Queen ... ... ... (but mates in only 11 moves!)

A nice one in the QP opening ...
D Genz vs D Boehmer, 1985

Nice game / good trap in the English.

Keene buries Black after ...Kg8?
Keene vs N J Kalton, 1963
