  ahmadov: Thanks to my opponent for uploading this game... Some good engine analysis can be found on my forum...

I think your 8...c6(instead of ...d6) and its followup 9...Nc7 wasn't a good deffensive idea. Even after this combination 10...Qh4 instead of 10...Qd8 is much better to leave some breathing room for the king and some prospect of activity for your queen.

  ahmadov: <hovik2003> I think my major mistake was that I thought I was winning after capturing the N no matter what my opponent plays. There are 7 games on this database with this opening, six of which end with Black win...

8...c6 looked to me a natural move to give a space to my N, while I played 10...Qd8 to give my queen a secure place on the back rank. I thought about Qh4, but I was afraid that the lady could be easily trapped if I had played that...

  ahmadov: I hoped to win like this :-)

  ahmadov: Anyway, this game is one of the most embarrasing for me for the last two or three years... However, it is a good one to learn from...
Premium Chessgames Member
  ahmadov: The only game in this database with similar opening in which White wins... This White win with pawn attacks on the Queen reminds the game I played

  brankat: ??? :-) But, You'll learn from this and do better next time around.
Aug-07-08  penguin496: Isn't 7..QXe4 forced else black is down a pawn with no compensation?

  ahmadov: <penguin496: Isn't 7..QXe4 forced else black is down a pawn with no compensation?> Then white would play 8.Re1 and win a Knight, but maybe that would be better than what happened in the game...

  ahmadov: <ravel5184: Hey! It's the "Oh My God!" trap!> Yes, this is how it is called... But it did not work in this game... ;-)
Oct-02-08  penguin496: 7...Qe4 8.Re1 Qc6 saves the knight.

  SwitchingQuylthulg: <penguin496> After 9.Qd3 there's no defense against 10.d5, as 9...d5 10.Bb5 pins the queen...
Mar-16-11  WhiteRook48: this is an important trap, but black still has to play carefully in this opening... white can get some dangerous attacking chances
