In this video, I explain the Schilling-Kostic Gambit, a dubious but highly venomous
gambit that has trapped over 7000 poor victims on lichess.org. The opening starts as a typical Italian Game, but then black plays the peculiar 3…Nd4?!! If white isn’t careful and captures the “free” material, it is easy to stumble into smothered mate after just 7 moves! This is the perfect opening to use for winning quickly against chess amateurs & beginners. It is also great for impressing your crush. However, this is not recommended for high level play.
