Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-27-04  mrvocab: A great example of what can go wrong with the Trompowsky. Black lays a trap starting with 5..Qb6 and 6..axb6. White falls into the trap with 7 Bxb8 followed by Be5 thinking he can keep the knight. The threat after 8..Rxa2! is either 9 Rxa2 c2! and Black queens and wins the knight, or 9 Nxc3 Rxa1+, winning the rook. A great modern miniature.
Dec-25-05  Averageguy: Best was 7.cd when black's inferior pawn structure is compensated for by his control of the half open a-file.

  FSR: A wonderful game, but Gallagher says (in his book "Beating the Anti-King's Indians") that White unsportingly played on for quite a while, even though he is losing gobs of material.
Aug-02-10  LIFE Master AJ: Nice trap!!!
Sep-02-12  vinidivici: 7...bxc3...let it be put in the puzzle of theday.
Feb-02-13  Novirasputin: If 7.cxd Soltis writes
Nc6, e3, Nb4 and life is not fun for white anymore. Qb3 is the sin here the rest is just 1000 ways to die.

  FSR: Good Tuesday-Wednesday puzzle after 7.Bxb8. Alternatively, could be a Monday POTD after 8.Be5.

  perfidious: First thought which came to mind on seeing <FSR>'s post in his forum was the renowned trap from Schuster vs Carls, 1914, but a better fit is really an analysis mentioned on that page by <Infohunter>: Schlechter vs J Perlis, 1911.

  MissScarlett: Richard Forster in his ChessCafe piece, <Jewels from Carlsbad 1911>: <To my dismay, Gallagher did not know at the time that Schlechter had anticipated the whole combination almost eighty years before. He had to (and did!) find it all by himself again.>
