Nov-02-05  azaris: 8...Nxe5 9. Nd5 O-O (or else 10.Nxc7 mates) 10. Nxc7 wins a rook. It's a stock trap in the Pirc. I think you're supposed to play 6... Ng4 7. Qxd8+ Kxd8 8. O-O-O+ Bd7 instead.
Jan-14-09  WhiteRook48: or 8. Rd1+ I don't like castling Q-side.

  Infohunter: <azaris: 8...Nxe5 9. Nd5 O-O (or else 10.Nxc7 mates) 10. Nxc7 wins a rook. It's a stock trap in the Pirc. I think you're supposed to play 6... Ng4 7. Qxd8+ Kxd8 8. O-O-O+ Bd7 instead.>

True, 6...Ng4 would have avoided the trap, but in this game Black might well have avoided loss by playing not 7...Ng4 but instead 7...Nfd2. See V Vepkhvishvili vs A Kharitonashvili, 1966. In that game White played 8.Nd5 and Black replied 8...Bxe5. The White Knight did end up capturing the Black Rook in the corner, but as the game progressed Black made up for that, and much more, winning in 25 moves overall.
