Playing with white, this trap is based on sacrificing your bishop when the black king is castled eating the black pawn of the f7 square, making the king capture the bishop allowing you to make a fantastic checkmate. In the trap, they participate apart from the bishop, the knight that is one of the most important pieces to achieve the objective, apart from the pawn of e2.
