Terminology: Trap



18 November 2019 0 comments


A Trap is a move which may tempt the opponent to play a losing move.

Another word used to describe a type of Trap is Swindle. This can be described in two moves:

  1. A ruse by which a player in a losing position tricks his or her opponent, and thereby achieves a win or draw instead of the expected loss. 
  2. It may also refer more generally to achieving a win or draw from a clearly losing position.
