  zydeco: Black has tried everything possible on move 9 -- although never again 9....Bd7. 10....Nf6 and 10....0-0-0 both look reasonable.

Black can also try 12....Qxc6 13.Bf3 Qd7 (not 13....Qb6 14.Qa4+ Kd8 15.0-0-0) but then 14.Bxb7! Qxb7 (14....Rd8 15.Bxa6 Qxd6 16.Bb5+ Kf8 seems like a losing endgame) 15.Qa4+ Qd7 (if 15....Kd8 16.0-0-0) 16.Qxa6 and white seems to win material one way or another e.g. 16.....Ne7 17.0-0-0 Qc6 18.Qxc6 Nxc6 19.Bxc5.

Horrible game for Steiner.
