Today I’d like to share with you one of the trickiest chess openings for Black, which is universal as it works against both 1.e4 and 1.d4 by White. It’s called the O’Sullivan Gambit from the Alekhine’s Defense which happens after the first moves: 1.e4 Nf6 2.e5 Nd5 3.d4 b5.

This gambit is so tricky that White loses in just 6-8 moves in the most common variations. It sets a trap almost every move and even top-rated players fall for these traps; yes, it works even against 2500+ players!

You can find the PGN of this opening gambit below:

I hope you enjoy reading this blog post.
