    I've been chasing all the chessboard trying to net an elusive butterfly
    called the 'Trick of Tricks' for many years now.
    I've had it in a blitz game and skittles but they don't really count.
    Another chance (just finished today.) has slipped through my greasy fingers.........One day.

    Nice!

    I put a lot of (admittedly simpler) traps in one little blitz game in a post here Thread 148309.

    It didn't really get many responses. I'm not sure whether it was because it was an RJ thread or just really not that interesting. You may find the last little mate (from a trap backfire) amusing.

    Hi Paul.

    I did see them. (I look at everything.) I got caught up looking this position for a while


    To see if there was any remote Queen trapping trick or good flight of fancy line for White
    after the Bishop goes. Saw nothing worth mentioning .....eventually.
