  Sneaky: The game might have continued: 7. ...Kd8 Re1 8. Qf6 Re8#
Oct-30-05  DeepBlade: Like this one Greco vs NN, 1620

Its great to see such opening traps. Chess is so complex, that an opening-assasin can mate after 10-18 moves.

Dec-31-05  DeepBlade: Well the problem is; White's development is just too great, and the pin with the Rook, or a fork with the Knight is such an burden for Black. Just follow this continuation:

7.Bb5+ c6 8.Re1 <this is the pin im talking about> cxb5 9.Nxb5 Bc5+ 10.d4 Bb6 <protection against the fork> 11.Ng5 Qxe1+ 12.Qxe1+ Ne7 13.Nd6+ Kf8 <if Kd8, Nxf7+(fork)> 14.Ngxf7 Nbc6 15.Nxh8 Nxd4 16.Kf1 <to remove the discovered check with Nxc2+ (winning White's Queen) Nxc2 17.Qe4 Nxa1 <now its a mate in 7 for White> 8.Qc4 Nd5 19.Qxd5 Ke7 20.Bxf4 Be3 21.Nxc8+ Rxc8 22.Qd6+ Ke8 23.Qe6+ Kd8 24.Nf7++
