    Hi could someone please assist me with searching the forums please, I am trying to get information on the Halosar trap and have tried searching to no avail, I would also like to learn how to play tne moves and see if there has ever been any discussion on this, Im sure this must have been discussed before. I have researched on google and the net but being a beginner im struggling to understand.

    Many thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

    Hi

    The lad you want to speak to is Blanca User 222465.
    I'll PM him see if we can get an appearance. It's always good to hear
    where fellow players got their pet trap from.

    Whilst I am PM'ing him. Check out these three games. (he has had more
    scalps on RHP - 6 and rising - than any other player on RHP.)

    Game 2244134 Black resigned before White could play 9. Nxc7 mate.

    Game 2337558 Black was mated in 9 moves.

    Game 2935125 Black was mated in 11 moves.

    This brings back feelings of Deja Vu. A couple of Welsh junior used to specialise in this line and as a coach to the juniors at numerous world champs I saw countless examples like this.

    Dodgy openings like this can pay off at lower levels but once they got to 2100+ they had to sort some decent openings out.

    The Blackmar-Diemer can be a handful in capable hands. We used to know this line (Qxf3 and not Nxf3) as the Rider Gambit. Not sure how it was spelt.

    Thanks for that link Kingshill. i played that opening some years ago and had 100% record with it in rated games. If black takes the second pawn things can get brutal. As I got older I started to chichen out of playing such hairy openings.

    The Ryder rings a bell. It's not uncommon to see traps/openings given
    different names from different regions.

    I was reading 'Chess with the Masters' by Martin Beheim a few weeks back.
    According to him some parts of Germany call the English Opening (1.c4)
    The Bremen Opening.

    it's called Halosar because it first appeared in the game Diemer-Halosar, Baden-Baden 1934 I guess. There are 16 Halosar games in Megabase 2012 but this game is not there so I can't show how it went.
