  Benzol: I would've suggested a pun like "Nobody Does It Better" but you can't submit a pun to a game that is less than ten moves long. A pity.
Jan-06-11  MaxxLange: i got to play a form of this trap in a tournament game once.....big fun
Aug-18-12  Karpova: This game was played by Eduard Hamlisch in Vienna in 1899 and Black resigned after 6.Ng5+ according to page 7 of the 1902 'Wiener Schachzeitung'.

  Phony Benoni: If this was GOTD-worthy -- which it most certainly is not -- I would suggest "The Hamlisch Maneuver."

  NeverAgain: The two highest-rated victims of this trap (if it even can be termed as such, more like a suicide bridge) are Robert Byrne and Alina l'Ami.

BTW, the opening is a Modern/Robatsch Defense (B06).

  Penguincw: I think that trap of 1.Bxf7+ Kxf7 2.Ng5+ followed by 3.Ne6+, trapping the queen happens in some Ruy Lopez opening as well.

I found the game: Judit Polgar vs Spassky, 1993 (Polgar missed it though).
