Though they appear to be normal moves, opening traps are deft maneuvers that almost inevitably lead to a rapid win for the trapper. This handy volume details the various types of traps available during a King’s Pawn Game and explains how to use them as well as how to avoid getting caught by them. The Italian, French, Spanish, and Sicilian trips—among many others—are explained with helpful texts that detail their typical motifs.
