  An Englishman: Good Evening: I'm surprised no one found this obscure little trap before. It's another Knight check exploiting a pinned pawn. Could have arisen from today's Opening of the Day via 1.e4,e5; 2.Nf3,Qe7; 3.Bc4,f5; 4.d4,Nc6.

  patzer2: Black's decisive mistake is 6...Nf6?, allowing 7. Bf7+ .

  fredthebear: Black resigns while in check -- it is not checkmate. Black is forced to play 9...QxNe6 which is met by 10.BxQe6 and the Black queen is lost without sufficient compensation. The d7-pawn is pinned by the White queen to the d-file and cannot capture upon the e6-square. Thus, the White bishop has time to capture the Black queen and then avoid recapture. Black will lose his queen for the White knight, and the Black king has lost the right to castle, so Black resigned.
