  patzer2: Black sets and springs a trap for white in the Smith-Mora after playing 6...Qc7, instead of the usual 6...d6.

After 7. 0-0 Nf6 8. Qe2, black sets the trap with 8...Ng5. White leisurely develops with 9. Bb3 and black springs the trap and immediatley wins with 9...Nd4! Note that 9. h3 to try and kick back the knight also loses to 9...Nd4!. The correct response to 8...Ng4 is 9. g3.

Oct-17-03  Alchemist: I've seen this before in the queen's indian, it's a classic tactical shot.
Nov-15-03  Dick Brain: The position after 8...Ng4 has happened 10 times in this database and white fell into the trap 7 of those times.

  Eggman: <The position after 8...Ng4 has happened 10 times in this database and white fell into the trap 7 of those times>

But is that representative? Maybe a game would be more likely to wind up in the database if it was very short.

Nov-17-03  Dick Brain: Good point. I dont think too many of those 7 games were played in top category international tournaments.
Jul-27-04  ruylopez900: Isn't this trap known as the Siberian Trap?

Yes, or the Novosibirsk variation.
9. ♘b5 ♕d8 10. h3 h5 11. g3 covers the vulnerable h2-square.
