Traps, Tricks & Mistakes: Again Orangutan

Again in the Orangutan opening (also known as Sokolski opening), black can set up an early trap just in the first move after 1.b4. It is not a trap offering any kind of bait, nor for winning immediate material. Instead, if white falls in the trap, his/her position will soon be ruined.

An appropriate trap when playing blitz games.
