|Oct-23-03|| ||Chris00nj: If 9...Be7, 10. Bxe7 Qxe7 11. e6! wins the knight.
If 8...Nfd7, 9. e6 fxe6 10. Nxe6 looks nice for white.
|Oct-25-03|| ||SicilianDragon: Most experienced players dodge this entirely by playing 6...Nc6 or 6...Nbd7 |
|Aug-08-04|| ||who: Chris if 9.Be7 Qxg4 and wins the knight straight out |
|Sep-30-04|| ||tacticsjokerxxx: if 9. -e7 then i'd intuitively play 10. e6 (-fxe6 11. 0-0) .. looks good |
anyway this was a nice trap, you learn something new about the dragon of sicily every day.
|Jan-05-06|| ||Emma: the only way to avoid disaster after 7 e5 against the Lavenfish attack is: instead of 7... fxe5?, ...Nh5! If white follows up with 8 g4? ....Nxf4! (Bxf4... dxe5)|
|Mar-17-06|| ||McCool: What about 9. ..Nc6? Or was it a touch move game.|
|May-24-06|| ||DeepBlade: Id would d0 this
11.Ne5+ Bxe6 12.Qxd8#
11.Ne5+ fxe6 12.Qxd8+ Kf7 Qxh1/0-0+
|Jun-23-06|| ||Far1ey: <Chris00nj> No. 9...Be7 leads to QxG4 as simple as that...|
|Jul-20-06|| ||Rocafella: 8.Nd7?|
|Mar-01-07|| ||WarmasterKron: <McCool> 9...Nc6 10.Nxc6 bxc6 11.Bxc6+ Bd7 and Black loses the exchange and a pawn (i.e. a piece).|

According to Fritz, 9...Nc6 is in fact the only playable move from the position after 9.Bb5+. After 9...Nc6 10.Nxc6 Qxd1+, white has only a small advantage. However, even after 10...bxc6 11.Bxc6+ Bd7 12.Bxa8 Qxa8, Fritz considers the position to be only about a pawn's advantage to white. Black can win back the pawn (e5), and has the two bishops, open files on the queenside, etc. The game is by no means over.
