Chess Traps- Elephant Trap

intermediate
thechesswebsite Traps Elephant trap

We take a look at the Elephant Trap in chess that stems from the Queens Gambit Declined line where white tries to take the weakness black has falsely presented and try to go up in material early on in the game. In fact this attempt fails and black ends up with a big advantage in the game.

For other traps and chess strategies be sure to check out the website at www.thechesswebsite.com

Thanks for watching.
