The only thing more humiliating than losing a game quickly is to lose a game quickly to a known opening trap. On the other hand, the easy point scored by the trapper is a great confidence booster, and allows the winner a good rest before the next game in a competition.

700 Opening Traps by Bill Wall
English | June 1998 | ISBN: 0945470711 | 92 Pages | PDF | 9 MB

A lurch into the pits of anxiety-losing in less than 20 moves. Probably the most important part of a chess game for the amateur chess player is the opening. At the amateur level, most games are won or lost in the opening through mistakes or falling in a book trap. It is important to study the openings and know what traps and pitfalls may arise from a particular variation, either to spring it on an opponent or avoid a trap that your opponent is trying to spring on you. This book illustrates short games to take advantage of poor opening strategy.

Chess Openings: Traps And Zaps (Fireside Chess Library) by Bruce Pandolfini
Touchstone; 9th Printing edition | April 15, 1989 | English | ISBN: 0671656902 | 263 pages | PDF | 15 MB

In the first completely instructional book ever written on chess openings, National Master Bruce Pandolfini teaches players how to take charge of the game's crucial opening phase.
Of the three traditional phases of chess play – the opening, the middle-game and the endgame – the opening is the phase average players confront most often. Unfortunately, though, many openings are not completed successfully, partly because until now most opening instruction has consisted of tables of tournament level moves that offer no explanations for the reasons behind them.
