The Scholar’s Mate (or the Fool’s Mate or the early queen attack) is the most disrespectful attempt of your opponents to checkmate you.

Many might think that only complete beginners would ever try this lame chess trick. However, the reality is completely different; almost 10 million players have tried the Scholar’s Mate or early queen attack. In fact, it is the second most played move by White in the opening position after 1.e4 e5.

In this video lesson, I’ll share with you a simple, yet brutal way to counter this early queen attack. And because it’s simple, you can learn this counter-trick very easily without having to spend much time memorizing different variations.

Below, you can find examples shown in the video:

I hope you enjoy reading this blog post.
