Trapped Pieces

With Black last week, I was expecting White. Regardless, I would not have been prepared for the Falkbeer variation of the Vienna Game. My opponent was an improving young club member. He was able to take advantage of my first trapped piece and to find a method to trap a another.

Lesson learned: Defensive tactics are just as important than offensive tactics. I need to especially be aware of pieces with a limited range of movement.
