Traps, Tricks & Mistakes: Englund Trap Reversed
Today’s example is a variation of the Englund Trap, already presented in a previous post. The game begins with the initial moves from the Scandinavian defence: 1.e4 d5 and deviates with 2.Nf3 into the Tennison Gambit.
In this Gambit, White offers a pawn in the opening. Gambits always aim of getting some advantage by means of a sacrifice. It is usually a bad idea for the side which accepts the gambit, to keep the loot.
Let’s see what happen in the present example. Enjoy the trap!
This trap is not very difficult to foresee and most probably you will have the chance to apply them when playing underrated players. Have fun!!
