YOU to tell me what is the best thing you like about this channel. Do let me know in the comments below. Okay, so the trick I am going to show you
is called the Stafford gambit. White starts with the king’s pawn opening,
pawn to e4. Black plays pawn to e5. Very common moves. Then knight to f3 and knight f6. We have the Russian game on the board. From here, white plays this very natural move
capturing the unprotected e5 pawn. Now, instead of taking this pawn with our
knight, we are going to setup our trap. We will play knight to c6, inviting white
to exchange knights. If you analyse, this is actually a very good
deal for White. He is already a pawn up and now by exchanging
knights, he can damage your pawn structure. So he goes for it. Knight captures knight and then we capture
this knight with our d pawn. Now if you see, White’s central pawn is being
attacked by our knight, so he will try to protect it and maintain the advantage. In this situation, you will generally see
2 responses from white. He can either play pawn to d3 to support this
pawn or he can move his pawn forward to attack your Knight.First, let’s look at what happens
if he plays pawn to d3. If he does this, then you should bring out
your bishop to c5. You are setting up your attack on this weak
king side pawn. A very natural move from white would be bishop
to g5, pinning this knight. But you need not worry. It’s time to surprise your opponent. Just go ahead and capture the e4 pawn with
your knight.Now, if white captures your queen, which he most probably will, then you will
play bishop to f2 check. The white king has only one square to go so
he will have to play king to e2 and finally, we play bishop to G4 and its a beautiful checkmate. Let’s go back a little. Now from here, if white decides not to capture
the queen, but instead, he captures your knight, like this, then you will play this stunning
move bishop to f2 check. He cannot take the bishop with his king because
if he does, then his queen is gone, just like this. So he will have to play king to e2 to support
his queen. But then, we will bring out our other bishop
and give check. And finally, when the king moves away, we
can snap up his queen. Let’s go back again. In this position, another common move you
can see from white would be bishop to e3. The idea is to block your bishop from attacking
on the king side. But when you exchange bishops like this, it
opens up another diagonal for your queen to attack. So after this, we play queen to h4 check. King to e2 can’t be played because queen f2
is checkmate. So white has to block with his pawn, like
this. Now we can safely capture this pawn with our
knight. If this pawn captures our knight, then we
can take this rook with our queen and we are at a solid advantage. If pawn does not take the Knight, then he
will have to play rook to g1 because it is being attacked by the knight. We can then have a discovered check by playing
knight to e4. Again, he can’t move king to e2 because then
queen f2 would be checkmate. So he is forced to block the check with his
rook. The best move in this case would be queen
takes pawn on h2. White has to save his rook and also block
the checkmate threat so he will have to play rook to g2. Then queen e4 check and king e2. Now our bishop jumps into action with a check. Rook has to capture the bishop, but then queen
f2 is checkmate and its game over.Now let’s go back and look at the second variation I
was talking about earlier. Let’s see what happens if white moves his
pawn forward and attacks our knight. Well then, we will have to save our knight. So we will play knight to e4. White is obviously feeling a little uncomfortable
with this knight in the center so he will continue attacking it by playing pawn to d3. But to his surprise, we are not going to save
our knight, but instead we will bring out our bishop to c5. If your opponent tries to be greedy and takes
your knight, then he is gone. Let me show you how. So pawn captures knight. Then we play bishop to f2, check. Again, king can’t take the bishop because
his queen is hanging. So he will again have to play king to e2. Then again, we play bishop to G4 check and
after the king moves, we can grab the queen and win the game easily. Let me know in the comments if you have any

  1. Can i have a question ? If he killed the pawn with his knight and rehide his knight the plan will be destroyed????🤔🤔🤔 can u make a video about this? please please and i love ur videos

  2. 1:57 if you wonder how to defend this. Just play pawn to f3. Black wont have any serious attack and white will have monster center and will be up a pawn.

  3. i used this trick…
    but sorry.. the respons is different to protect the pawn.. they used queen and bishop to protect it
    i want to see how you deal with it

  4. sir… pta ni game k time aisa dimag hi ni chlta…. mera competition hona vali hai… nd koshish krungi jeetne ki…. 😂 pr khelte time smj hi ni aata kya krun

  5. 1:25 so he goes for it. and i went for the tingles there.
    your accent is so tingely you should do asmr as a side project.
    and the moves are sick gone play more petrovs now

  6. My favorite thing about this channel is when he says.. “if your opponent gets greedy and takes your ****, then he’s gone… let me show you how” 😂😂. That makes me so damn happy.

  7. Love the videos and how you present the different outcomes. You also remind me of an old co-worker/trainer… a good one lol 👍

  8. @chesstalk 4:46 I play against lesser opponents who never want to give up their queen despite be up significantly in material. What is the best continuation of pawn doesn't take? Also, what moves are the key moves that white can make to prevent this Gambit from working and the best continuation for black? @4:40 what if pawn to D4 was played instead blocking the black biship? #ChessTalk

  9. Here understanding Clear no problem,but enter into game we are forgot opening moves also, in this your suggestions what we do?

  10. Sir you are very great I played this trap and my opponent was in big trouble he was not able to think that what shall he play and at last he was checkmate in 17 moves then he said to me that I thought you are amateur but I was wrong you are a genius … I was quite and I said him Thank you……. But I want to tell to everyone that If I want to say Thank you to someone he is no other he is Jeetendra Advani sir Thank you sir for making such a nice video keep going sir

  11. What about instead of white moving the pound to d3 to attack the knight he moves the pound on f2 to f3 to attack the knight .What do you suggest. I am new at chess but I really love the game

  12. I like the way you teach that to with clarity and it's easy to understand even for me a class 6th student😊😊😊

  13. My advice to you is start playing games on android mobile on grand master level, you will realize what's the real game is, these kids tricks don't work in real time
