  Honza Cervenka: If 16...Qxd6, then 17.Nb5 Qe7 18.c4 with decisive advantage of white. Very good game of Paulsen.

  offramp: Black plays 3...Qh4+ but that is his only check and he is soon back-pedaling like billio.

  tpstar: 8. Kg2 sets the trap 8 ... gxh2?! 9. Rxh2 trapping the Queen, or 8 ... 0-0?! 9. hxg3 also trapping the Queen. Thus 8 ... d6 9. hxg3 Qg4 10. Be2 Qd7 11. Bxg5 regaining the Pawn while Black wasted a great deal of time in the opening phase.

8. Kg2 is best met by 8 ... Qh6 Opening Explorer
