Jan-19-06  erimiro1: Very nice trap and not an easy one to find!! I'm sure that after black played 7.-Nc6! white suspected that something was wrong. After all, it was "clear" that after 8.d5 black would lose his pinned knight. But the fact was, that white didn't find the well masked move to follow: 9.-Qe4! only when it was too late. Afterwards he could only choose which way to lose:: a.10.d:c6 B:c3+ and bye-bye to the queen b. 10.Qb3 Nd4! etc. c. 10.Qd1 N:d5 11.Qd2 N:c3 12.b:c3 Q:h4 13.c:b4 Q:b4

  Phony Benoni: He might also try 10.Bxf6 Bxc3+ 11.Bxc3 Qxa4 12.dxc6 netting three pieces for the queen, if that's worth anything.

  Phony Benoni: <Fisheremon> Good find! 10.0-0-0 looks like it saves the day.
Dec-31-06  azaris: Maybe White didn't know you can castle long even if the rook moves through a square that is under attack. This sometimes causes confusion.
Dec-31-06  hellstrafer: <azaris> That's a bold statement. Antunes is a GM and when this was played he was 23 so it seems unlikely to me that he wouldn't know such a rule.
Dec-31-06  azaris: <hellstrafer> Victor Korchnoi had been a GM for decades when he played against Karpov in a candidates match and he didn't know it!
