222 Opening Traps after 1.e4 - Muller & Knaak162 pages, paperbackEvery chess player has gone through the experience of a game coming to an end before it even really began. The reason for the wwuick loss is normally an opening trap, which to the victim look quite ?normal? moves - a piece is developed, something is captured, or a threat is set up and parried. The reply, for the most part an unusual one and therefore totally unexpected, then almost inevitably leads to a rapid win for the ?trapper?. The two internationally recognised Grandmaster authors - Rainer Knaak is considered an expert on the openings, and Karsten Müller on the endgame - therefore propose two main objectives:    * the student should master the traps in the openings he plays, in order to avoid disasters;    * but he can also systematically try to expand his opening repertoire, in order to be able to execute more traps.This first volume contains all the important openings after 1.e4, such as the Italian, French, Spanish, Sicilian etc., as well as introductory texts with their typical motifs, with which one should be familiar. A welcome side effect of Traps in the Opening is that you are guaranteed to improve your tactical ability.Contents- Foreword ... 6- Introduction ... 7- Symbols ... 10- 1.
