Mar-04-03  ChessPraxis: White plays 10. Bxf7+ in order to gain control of the g6 square (take it away from the Black Queen as a retreat square).

10 ... Kxf7 would lose the Queen to 11. Ne5+. The actual trap of the Queen is a little less obvious (and wins less material).

Mar-05-03  drunknight II: why is black giving up here? why not QxR followed by KxB and material is all even.

  crafty: 11. ... ♕xh4 12. ♘xh4 ♔xf7 13. ♕h5+ ♔f8 14. ♘g6+   (eval 2.81; depth 12 ply; 100M nodes)
Jul-08-03  wunmu: Black is way behind in development and White's attack will come quickly.
Jul-09-03  dalilama: not to mention...well as crafty put it...black's queen is trapped
Jan-21-05  Granite: Black's behind in development, his king is loose whites center is strong, and white has a queen to black's two pieces, I'm thinking superior matieral or mate will show themselves quickly. If blacks pieces were developed and coordinated he might have a chance, but in a position like this it's time to resign.

  InspiredByMorphy: 4. ...Bc5 is a bad move. 7.g3 is a great move.
Nov-27-05  DeepBlade: I like 10.Bxf7+, but ive never had the chance to pull it off against someone.
Nov-27-05  alicefujimori: <DeepBlade>That's because you're not playing against an NN...lol
Nov-28-05  DeepBlade: True, the people I play are at least(ELO) 1300, most of the are 1500/1700, highest ever beaten is 1800.

It is said that Greco's games were composed by him and not actually played. They were to demonstrate opening traps and the like which he had thought up.
Sep-23-07  wolfmaster: <SJP> If that was the case, Greco had a lot of opening trap ideas in 1620.
Jan-11-09  WhiteRook48: 4...Bc5 threatens a mate in 1, but it might have been an overplay. I played this against a computer, instead of 4...Bc5, it played 4...a5? and I got really confused and started losing. Oh well.
