Oct-09-10  paladin at large: If you look at the history of the Monticelli trap you see that it takes a top-flight defender to be able to draw. Capablanca did it twice against strong opposition. I wonder which game the silicon engines prefer for Black's play, the game above, or this one

Euwe vs Capablanca, 1931

Jan-24-17  joddle: I doubt Andersson actually blundered into this trap as this idea is known from the early 1900s; I think he intentionally sacrificed the exchange, but to be honest I don't think black should have enough. Andersson is a great defender though and did a good job to draw.
