Jan-31-05  dac1990: D'oh! I saw this one played out on the board. Someone should add it to an opening trap collection.
Jan-31-05  aw1988: How could the great Rubinstein miss such a trap? :)
Jan-31-05  dac1990: I believe that this is Rubenstein, spelled with an "e" and living in the 21st century, instead of that other player, Akiba Rubinstein.
Jan-31-05  aw1988: <dac1990> Gee, is it? I could have sworn...
Jan-31-05  jmcd2002: <D'oh! I saw this one played out on the board. Someone should add it to an opening trap collection.> This really seems more like a blunder than a "trap" per se. It's not like black baited him into it.
Mar-21-05  chessmanelnino: So why not Nxa3
Mar-21-05  jumperino: If Nxa3 the Qa5+ winning the knight.
