  Sneaky: A simple combination, but easy to miss. I didn't see it coming.
Dec-25-01  Smartypants: 8. ...e5 must have been a mistake. Anybody have another move?
Dec-25-01  Smartypants: how about 8. ...Kh8
Dec-19-05  KFitzgerald: What are Blacks options for move 11?

11 ... NxN
12 BxN+ Kh8
13 BxN QxQ
14 RxQ ...

and now black is down a piece.

Jan-08-08  YouRang: Nice! One knight attacks another, creating a discovered double attack on the bishop. Black can't escape by taking the knight because the subsequent diagonal fork of the K+N wins it back.
Jun-07-09  WhiteRook48: how about 8...dxc4?
