Kieninger Trap

The Kieninger Trap is a combination in the Budapest Gambit, and named after German International Master Georg Kieninger, who was the first to use it effectively. This gambit offers a piece in exchange for a tricky mate. The moves are:

1. d4, Nf6
2. c4, e5
3. dxe5, Ng4
4. Nf3, Nc6
5. Bf4, Bb4+
6. Nbd2, Qe7
7. a3 ....

White intends to drive the Bishop or exchange it for the Knight.  But Black lays the trap...

7. ....Ngxe5
8. Nxe5, Nxe5
9. axb4, Nd3 mate.

Another trick in Budapest Gambit runs as follows:

1. d4, Nf6
2. c4, e5
3. dxe5, Ne4
4. Nf3, d6
5. exd6, Bxd6
6. g3, Nxf2
