Player: Philippines  LayZ Style Subject: Chess Trap #9 C65 Ruy Lopez Berlin Defence 4.d3 d5

Black has developed his Queen prematurely, and neglected necessary defensive measures.

4...d5? A pointless gambit which does not deserve to succeed. 4...d6 is the proper move.

6...Qb4+ playing for the win of a piece.

7...d4, continuing in consistent fashion. However, White has a clever resource.

8...Qxb2? still pursuing his own plans without considering the consequences.

Very good. But why is 4...d6 the correct move? I always play Bc5 in this position. I do not understand.

Good point. I will remember 4...d5 is the incorrect move, lol.

4...Ne7 (the Mortimer trap), on the other hand, is not a pointless gambit.

Why do you always play 4...Bc5, Hot Tracy?
