  Whitehat1963: Another example of how NOT to play the Petrov.
May-21-04  marcus13: I played exactly the same game with black against an opponent rated 1784. I am only 1451 and I was scared about this high rated player. I won exactly the same way.
Aug-14-04  Calchexas: An excellent trap. IMO, everyone who plays the Petrov should know it.
Sep-24-04  morphy234: Great trap!!!
May-13-05  fgh: Silly play by white :-)
Apr-28-06  dutchboy13: hahaha white next move is king d1 or king e2. blacks move always will be knight to c3 and that will put white in check and black will take his queen. White can still take the knight but then blacks queen will take whites queen so he cant do anything to stop the queen trap.

Jul-05-14  ljfyffe: Sorry, as we Canadians oft say but this game I see is produced elsewhere; however, hypothetical moves are given in some sites as if actually "played".

  fredthebear: After 8.Ke2 (or 8.Kd1), then 8...NxNc3+ 9.bxNc3 QxQd5 10.KxBf2, White has lost Her Majesty and the right to castle for a pawn and Bishop.
