Probably true tbh. What legitimacy is there in a QP in the VW?

Isn't that an urban legend tho? True art has been thrown in the VW, now that I remember.

Noah's Ark Trap


I have fallen for it several times. Not that I often play Ruy Lopez as white 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5



To follow up with 3... a6 4. Ba4 d6 is normal opening theory, though I prefer to wait with 4... d6 to get my Bishop to c5. The Bishop can also be placed on e7 or g7 as well.



Now comes the possibility of a trap. Imagine you are white in this position, it is your move and I think it is very natural to consider the move 5. d4, which is actually the fourth most popular move in this position.
Not only does d4 attack for the center, it also pressures the knight on c6, but 5. d4 may lead to a trap that costs white his Bishop on a4!

5. d4 b5 (solves the pressure against the knight) 6. Bb3 Nxd4 7. Nxd4 exd4



In this position the most natural thing to do, in my opinion, would be to recapture the pawn and get a centralized queen with 8 Qxd4, but this is one more step towards falling for the trap.

A better response would have been to play e.g. 8.c3 (going for a gambit) or 8.Bd5 (threatening the black Rook on a8), but once the poisoned pawn is removed from the board, it is to late, and the following sequence forces a minor piece off of white.

8. Qxd4?? c5 (threatens the Queen, and if c4 is allowed afterwards, the white Bishop is trapped) 9. Qd5 (threatens the Rook on a8, hoping for black moving the rook, and then white can save the Bishop) 9... Be6 (threatens the white Queen and guards the Rook via black Queen, hence white is forced to move the Queen again) 10. Qc6+ Bd7 (as a final attempt white checks black King with the Queen, but black simply threatens the Queen again with the Bishop blocking for the check, and next move from black will be c4 which traps white's Bishop) 11. Qd5 c4.



Which is the Noah's Ark Trap in the Ruy Lopez (Spanish) opening.
