Learn How to Avoid Opening Traps and Pitfalls

It is always nice to win a game quickly. But some opening traps are based only on hopes that the opponent will make a serious mistake. If the opponents play correctly, the trap could backfire. On this DVD Susan will take you through a number of opening traps & short games. By knowing what to do and what to avoid, you can turn the tables on your opponent, giving you the win instead of becoming the falling victim to a “cheapo”.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    The opening phase of the game is where most club-level players feel more comfortable, since we are used to think that we would be quite safe at least until the 10th move. But you need to be aware of potential checks and traps in the opening!

    I found a great way to improve my opening skills and tactics in this video. GM Polgar shows some of the most commons traps in the opening, how to avoid them and how to take advantage of them.

    A little disappointing – less about opening traps to avoid than about mistakes made in the middlegame and illustration of more chessic general principles.
