Nov-17-07  takking: Just fell for this very same trap in chess club last night. Is Rxe6+ than take Queen not better ? Or would white be too far behind in development in a dangerous position ?

Thanks for the advice.

  OBIT: Seems like 12. Rxe6+ would have been even more brutal. At any rate, checking Platz's biography, he was 15 when this game was played. Surely he wasn't known as Dr. Platz just yet. :)

9...g6 will be fine for black.
