Are there any good openings that are tactical and have not well known traps in them?

If you like tactical games, your best choice would be to play
(1) classical positions; as white you can easily reach them by 1. 31-27 or 1. 33-28;
(2) dyke positions (ones where white has a checker / draughtsman on square 24 or black has a checker / draughtsman on square 27);
(3) positions where you allow opponent to make left-wing bind: for white, 1. 35-30 20-25; for black: 1. 32-28 16-21. These openings are tactically harsh for both sides, and if you master them, you can score very well under short time control.
A good resource for mastering shots in dyke positions is a book .
