It doesn’t matter which openings you prefer to play. Every opening has dangerous and venom-filled traps that (in a single move) can make you lose the game. The good thing is that you can be on the winning side by learning them!

Why Was This Course Created?

Even strong players have had the face-reddening experience of losing in a few moves.

Look at this guy: he thought his “tactical shot” …Nxd4 was winning… only to have his sneaky, snickering opponent trap his queen in a few moves… humiliating!

How can you avoid nightmare situations like this?

Studying all the most common traps for every opening will save you dozens of points and hours of embarrassment!

No matter what openings you play, there’s something IM Mat Kolosowksi will point out to help you sidestep the dangers, improve your tactical skill, and improve your overall tournament performance.
