Bc4 Nd4!?White to move. whats your move?The name of this trap (Blackburne Shilling) is associated to Joseph Henry Blackburne (1841-1924), surname Black Death, who according to the legend earned his life by playing a shilling a game (an old English coin = 5 new pence), at least 100 thousands players. Remember when in New York thirty years ago the bet was one dollar a game.Instead of showing you some hundreds of opening traps, in many different openings, where at the end of the reading no one will be remembered, with the regret of knowing that in a similar position theres a winning sequence, which you do not recall- I will fully cover just one trap, for Black, rather unknown, which claimed many victims, up to Master level. Who however are able (they) to win even after losing one solid piece. But normally the game ends in 7 moves, depending on the greediness of your competitor.Novice and intermediate players are the target of this book, up to 1.600 Elo rating. Who like sharp tactics.This edition of Blackburne Shilling is a translation of the Italian original edition, first published on September 2012.If you came here, you probably have already read my other Chess books, Chess patterns among them, being so familiar with my basic English, which with the help of many diagrams should be capable to explain these concepts.This translation by me is not still controlled for proper language. I apologize therefore for the remaining grammatical errors. Simply Click to look inside to check if you can understand.To help, notation is algebraic with figurines, one of the few ebooks with this feature! (A symbol of the moving piece appears instead of an abbreviating letter, so anyone can follow in any language).And you can easily get a refund if not satisfied, my refund rate standing below a bare 1% now, for some thousands books sold.Enjoy the reading, and play well.Rodolfo Pardi, librarian, FSI (Italian Chess Federation) instructor and Tournament director
