As I have never heard it said I will say what maybe is the obvious: White, when playing Queen's Gambit, upon developing both knights no traps can be used against her. T or F?

antichrist why don't you post the position your getting at, and ask the reader what he is to play, or ideas associated with the position etc? If there are any traps in the Queens pawn oppening your reffering to. :)

I can't see what is wrong with making a definitive statement that is clear and illuminating as well as eliminating. Why beat around the bush?

Have you heard anyone anyone else say it -- no!!

'Clear'; that was the problem, I found it not so 'clear and illuminating'.

e2 before developing the bishop and a3 (to defend c4 now that the B on f1 is blocked). :D

False
Go look in 'Winning Chess Traps' by Irving Chernev ... there's a heap of Queen's Gambit traps where black wins pieces ... and a vast majority of positions have white developing knights to c3 and f3.
If you want more infor, I'll quote a game or two as examples ...

But what really is a trap? Of course there are traps in any opening, perhaps its not so well known that the trap has its own name but as Kerry Stead said there are heaps out there. If your interested I have posted a few just from the Cambridge Springs Opening which I find pretty amusing to play with as Black (until your up against the big boys anyway ;-) )
I have packed a few games into one here just so you all get the idea. Its not so neat I know, but I find it a useful way of showing off different traps from similar positions without replaying the whole game. Hint: use the arrows under the game box to navigate through each game easily. James.

1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 Nbd7 5.e3 (5.cxd5 exd5 6.Nxd5?? Nxd5!! 7.Bxd8 Bb4+ –+) 5...c6 6.Nf3 Qa5 {The Cambridge Springs is full of traps!} 7.Nd2 (7.Bd3 Ne4 8.Qc2 (8.Bf4 Nxc3 9.Qd2 Bb4 10.a3 dxc4 11.Bxc4 Nd5 0–1) 8...Nxg5 9.Nxg5 dxc4 0–1) (7.Qb3 Ne4 8.a3 Nxg5 9.Nxg5 dxc4 0–1) 7...dxc4 (7...Bb4 8.Qc1 Ne4 9.Ncxe4 dxe4 10.a3 Bxd2+ 11.Qxd2 Qxg5 0–1) 8.Bxc4 Qxg5 0–1



I particularly like the last game so it gets its own box...

In spite of JGB offering some examples I would also appreciate some from yourself if you are not too busy. I was relying on Traps & Zaps books and my too old memory as well. I will make good use of. Thanks

I think that traps and zaps book only concentrates on e4 openings.

To have it out as to who is a racist/anti-Semite proceed out in carpark, i.e., the Blood on Hands thread in Non-Chess

When teaching chess my favourite quote is:

That chess is like life and marriage i.e., marry in haste and regret in leisure.

Admittedly most of the students look at me and wondering what I am on about, but the few maturer ones will catch it and give a big smile.

Nowadays one can resign and start a new game with minimal fuss.

:) I got that book for christmas from my Uncle... it says at the start that it is mostly, well all e4..e5 starting moves -> but some of the examples at the start are just silly..no one would make them moves. But there is some good mantras... like "bring your Queen out early, lose your Queen early"... and other ones but i forget them I will have to go find where i left it.

Anyone like to hazard a guess as to how this one could be worked into the marriage analogy?

Do you mean getting a divorce and re-marrying? The Muslims can, they only need to say "I divorce you" three times -- three strikes and you are out.

Is it true that (maybe at the highest level) the Sicilian Dragon variation has become almost redundant, or is getting beaten too often.

Well it could be if you bring your queen out your missus will kill him/her? Whereas after the missus is about 60 she wont care and will be happy to be left alone

Note that this question was written four years ago.

After Carlsen's games (especially) I don't think many people would be asking this question anymore!
