  Landman: I suspect the move order was actually 8...b5 9.Nd5 Be7
Apr-18-09  grasser: Actually 9...Nxd5 would win a piece for Black, so the notation must be wrong.

  Honza Cervenka: <grasser: Actually 9...Nxd5 would win a piece for Black, so the notation must be wrong.> Well, in fact 9...Nxd5 wins only a Pawn after 10.exd5 Bxg5 11.dxc6 bxc6 but I agree with Landman that the order of moves in the game was probably different.

  Richard Taylor: I fell into this 'trap' once: the position arose by transposition and then I overlooked that I was losing a pawn (not a piece as c6, luckily for me was to be attacked). I think I eventually lost the game. But according to my 'engine' 9. .... Nxe4 (a bit better than taking on d5 as happened to me) gains the upper hand, so it may have been a move order error or as sometimes happens a player simply doesn't notice when what he expected is not played and plays on as if it had. Even GMs at a high level.
