  Sally Simpson: 6...Bg4 then 7...Rb8 One of the most beautiful traps ever set on a chessboard.

White had to be a resonable player to fall into it by spotting the shot starting with 9.Nxf6.

Instructive in the fact that it always pays to look two/three moves deeper when you are planning a combination to make sure there is no sting in the tail.

Sometimes after playing a combo your well placed and protected pieces are suddenly all over the place now unprotected with weak squares left in their wake.

Du Mont in his '200 Miniatures of Chess' (published in 1941) gives...

13. Kd1

"only move."

13.... Qxf3+
14. Kc2 Qxc4+ 0-1

Reinfeld added the extra moves and the mate 20 years later.
