puzzle for you all. So stay tuned till the end and keep watching Chess Talk. Hello Chess Friends, I am Jeetendra Advani. If this is your first time on this channel

– d4, d5. Then we offer our e4 pawn and Black takes
it gleefully. This opening is popularly known as the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit. Now we play knight to c3 attacking the e4
pawn. Then Black defends with a very natural move,
knight to f6. We will now offer another pawn by playing
f3. Black naturally takes with his e4 pawn. Now the standard reply would be to take this
pawn with our knight. But we are going to do something different. We will capture this pawn with our queen. By playing this, we are offering another pawn
that is highlighted here. This is what we call the Ryder Gambit or the
Halosar Trap. Black naturally takes with his queen. Our main idea of playing this line is to clear
the ‘d’ file so that we can get our rook to attack the king. So our most logical move in this variation
would be bishop to e3, attacking the queen and at the same time, preparing to castle
in order to get the rook to this open file. Now let’s look at this from Black’s perspective. He obviously has to move his queen because
it is being attacked, and he also knows that we are going to castle. He actually has a cheeky little trap here. He can go to B4, attacking this pawn. And if we castle, although this pawn will
be saved, but black can now play this cunning move, bishop to G4, skewing the queen and the rook. That would be trouble for you, right? Well, let’s see. So black plays this natural move, queen to
B4, trying to trap you. We know what he is going to do, so let’s invite
him. We simply castle on the queen’s side. Black is on top of the moon, thinking he has
got you. But in reality, it’s the other way around. If he goes ahead & plays bishop to G4, then
he is gone. Let me show you how. After black moves his bishop, we are going to play this crushing move, knight to b5. If black gets over excited and takes your queen, then knight to c7 is check and mate. Going back, if he tries to take your knight with his queen, then bishop captures queen and its check to black. And after he blocks the check, you can save
your queen and win the game easily. Going back, if he tries to free up some squares for the king to move and plays something like pawn to e5, then knight c7 check. Black’s only move is king to e7. Then, we can play queen takes b7. And if queen captures queen, then that’s a
blunder because bishop to c5 is a beautiful checkmate. So Going back, in this position, the most
logical & common response you will see from black would be knight to a6, protecting the
c7 pawn. But what we have done now, is that by bringing
the Knight here, we have blocked this queen from defending this pawn. So now, we can capture this b7 pawn with our
queen. As you can see, we are double attacking this
pawn & threatening to capture his queen through a discovered attack, just like this. So What can black do now?If he tries something
like rook to b8, then we can simply capture the rook with our queen to give check. And after Knight captures queen, knight to
c7 is a beautiful checkmate. Going back, if black plays rook to c8, defending
this pawn, then we can simply take the Knight with our queen. And if bishop tries to take our rook like
this, then queen to c8 is another checkmate. Going back again, if bishop straight away tries to exchange rooks by playing bishop d1, then queen captures rook, check. And after the king moves, we can save our
knight and then boss the game. We are attacking this bishop, we are attacking
this knight, We are way ahead in development, Black’s king is out in the open, and all these
black pieces are of absolutely no use. We should easily win this game from here. Okay, Now let’s go back and see what is actually the best move for Black in this position. Well, the best move is queen to e4, double
attacking the queen and this bishop. Black is looking to exchange queens and minimise
the damage. So should we take the queen? Absolutely not! We will go ahead & capture this knight and again threaten this weak c7 pawn. If black tries to capture the rook first, then we can
simply take the bishop. And after rook d8 check, we can block with
our bishop and we are significantly ahead in material. So bishop captures rook is not a good idea. Going back, so obviously black needs to capture
the bishop with his queen, to give check. We move our king to b1. Now black will have to do something about
this pawn, so he plays queen to c5 to support it. Now again, we play queen to b7 attacking the
rook. If bishop captures rook, then queen takes rook, check. King moves to d7, only possible move. And finally, we need to do something about
this checkmate threat, so we block with our knight like this and at the same time, we
also attack his bishop. As you can see, white has a decisive advantage
here. Black’s pieces are sitting like mere spectators,
they can’t do anything. On the other hand, we have a lot of attacking
options to pounce on this open king. We can bring out our bishop with tempo, our
knight can jump to f3 and then our rook can also enjoy the show by taking shots at this
lonely king. So all in all, this is a strong advantage
for White. Now let’s go back & see, what happens if black plays rook to c8. Well, then we can take this a7 pawn with our
knight. Now the Bishop can’t capture because then queen to c8 would be checkmate. So black
plays bishop to f5, double attacking this c2 pawn. But now, we can bring our bishop into action
by playing bishop b5 check. The king can’t move & again, if he blocks
with the knight or the bishop, then queen to c8 is checkmate and its game over. So let’s
go back & understand where black goes wrong. Let’s look at this position. Although the most natural move here seems
to be queen to b4 & I guess, almost 90% of the players would play this. But the best move is a difficult move to spot,
and that is queen to G4. Yes, Black should look to exchange queens. And white should not allow him to do that
considering he is already 2 pawns down. From here, white should go back and continue
with his development. This should be an even game from here, yeah
may be black has a slight advantage. But Nevertheless, this trick is definitely
worth trying out in your games. Okay, so It’s puzzle time. But Before moving onto today’s chess puzzle,

  1. In given puzzel there is no way for white to win this game but white can play stalemate by following way…

    Okay so first of all advance the pawn of C-file and give a check to black…
    Black have to capture the A7 knight with king…..(The consequences after playing king to A8 as a black are even worst for black)….

    So after black king captures the knight …place white king to G1 square

    Now black have only one legal move that is king to A8….
    From here white can simply move king in H1 and G1 squares….

    And black is left for no options….so black is also forced to move king in A8 and A7 squares…..so it will be draw after threefold repeatation…

    If black tries to bring bishop in the game then it will be stalemate on the spot…..

    Nice puzzle❤

  2. If you push the c pawn you can force a draw, he should take the knight, and then allow his bishop back in the game with Ka8 followed by Ba7… But by the time he can use that bishop you will have eliminated his h3 pawn, stay on the light squares and get to the a file and he can't checkmate you as he has no way to check you on a light square and you will be keeping his a-pawn from being promoted

  3. Pawn to c6 then the king will be traped and then we can kill the pawn on h3 with our king and promote our pawn which is on h3

  4. I'm not an expert on chess but my guess is c6+. It forces the king to take knight and the king can only get out of the corner by first moving to a8 and then bishop to a7. Meanwhile the white king is pushing h after using the moves black needed to get out of the corner. White still can't make it because of the bishop though.

  5. What should you do if his Bishop comes in earlier than the Queen does? From C8 to G4. I tried this trap and that happened.

  6. I use this opening on chess.com a lot. Yesterday a 1200 player finally fell into it perfectly and took my queen. Checkmate. Sooo satisfying.

  7. Move knight to c8…king will probably cut it…move the pawn one step forward…the black king and black pawn cannot move usefully …the black bishop is useless…use the white to cut the nearest pawn…move the white pawn to the other end and get a queen….if played smart white wins

  8. The best move is c6 because if we play c6 then king will take the knight and then we will going to take the pawn of h3 and promoting another queen.

  9. King to g3 then black king captures knight then we can block c7 pawn by moving c5 pawn to c6 ..then white king capture h3 pawn ..and h2 pawn will get free path ..

  10. First time seen your channel. Excellent. Took five games and I successfully pulled this checkmate off. Very satisfying 🙂

  11. Firstly move pawn to c6 then black king definitely take the knight then move king to g3 and take the pawn at h3 since black pieces can't move only black king move up and down and white can have a queen and B7 will be a beautiful checkmate
