  Phony Benoni: <balachandar> Look more closely. Alekhine's move, <24.g4>, traps the Black queen.
Nov-24-11  macm31: hxg5?, why take the knight when you can have his Queen?...
Dec-19-13  Cheapo by the Dozen: I guess 20 h4 required the response ... g5. Black has a pretty loose position, however, after

21 fg Qxg6
22 c4 (best way I can see to free the bishop).

Sep-01-16  yureesystem: Cute queen trap. :)
