Traps, Tricks & Mistakes: Double Pattern

Do you remember the “Legal trap” and “Boden’s mate”?
In today’s game, both patterns appear together and the victim is none other than the great Russian master Mikhail Chigorin.

It is not rare if you consider that his opponent is another great master of that time: Siegbert Tarrasch.

Chigorin played carelessly the opening and soon found himself in trouble.

As great master Savely Tartakower stated: “Mistakes are always there waiting to be made”
