  Sneaky: Is this what's known as the poisoned pawn variation?

I fully approve of 8.Qd2 and usually do a very similar thing when playing offbeat queens-pawn openings as White. If Black wants to spend the time playing Qb6, Qxb2, and then retreating, I say let him. (or her)

Apr-18-04  f1list: 29. Nxe4 is nice, but black didn't have to accept.
Apr-18-04  Kenkaku: Quite a brutal finish indeed. Perhaps 30...Rf8 would save.
Nov-24-06  aazqua: Nice. Black plays with fire and gets burned. An appalling neglect of king protection.
Dec-31-11  hedgeh0g: I imagine obtaining a wang pin would be a fairly painful procedure.

Sure, but next to the "wang fork" or "wang skewer", it sounds like a picnic. And let's not even contemplate the "wang smothered mate".

Not to mention "zugzWANG"...:-)
