|Aug-18-08|| ||patzer2: White's ill fated attempt to trap the Queen back fires on him after Black plays the clever defensive move 15...b5!|
After the smoke clears, Black's extra pawns and better position are near decisive.

|Apr-19-11|| ||Ratt Boy: I'm baffled by White's 9.c7. It's not like the friar's...you know...DOING anything there. Didn't Igor's mommy tell him not to go moving a piece twice while others aren't developed?|
If it's meant to remove an escape square for Black's , it didn't work. It also leaves the e3 square undefended--which, in some lines, is more consequential for White. The whole a4-b1-c7-a5 idea is slow and looks as awkward as a penguin on land. No wonder ...b5 works for Black.
I figure c4, followed by e2, develops and gains time.
|Apr-19-11|| ||tamar: 9 Bc7 was a known idea. Lawrence Trent-Mark Hebden Southend 2006, not in this database, was a White win.|
Interestingly, Trent tried the idea again later in 2008 and won when Kotronias blundered while trying to trap the bishop L Trent vs Kotronias, 2008
But I agree, the whole idea looks dubious if Black avoids a few traps.

|Apr-19-11|| ||Chessmensch: Was there time trouble? White was in trouble for some time, but his last move was almost unbelievable. He surely did step into shaving cream. See the following: http://www.boyscouttrail.com/conten...|
