Opening Traps With Im Mat Kolosowski
The Sozin Trap. White just played f5. How can Black immediately punish this bad move? Solution below.

Apart from being a player, he is also a chess coach who has experience working with students from more than 20 countries.

He has helped some of his students obtain their own international titles. Mat has also performed live commentary of Polish and European Rapid and Blitz Championships.

Here is what it will do for you:

  • How to laugh at the London System: London is considered one of the most solid openings in chess. So imagine white’s shock when he loses a piece to the simple 4…e5! – players as strong as 2100 Elo have fallen into this one!
  • A Knight Sac that shatters the Caro Kann: This opening is proven to be safe and solid…right? Wrong. Keep an eye out for the shocking Nxf7!! which comes from a blue sky but ends the game immediately! (See Chapter 14)
  • A Queen Sac that totally trolls 1.d4 Players: One careless move as white and he destroys you with a game-winning queen sacrifice! One of the hidden dangers of the Queen’s Gambit opening and one EVERY player must know! (See Chapter 17)
  • And there are dozens more.
