Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-02-02  Bears092: after BxQ, Bb4+ wins the queen.
Apr-15-05  checkpat: More than the Q:
Bb4+Qd2 NxQ! Bc7 Ne4+ meaning Nc3
Jul-10-06  rvade: And 6. Qa4 fails to 6.... Bd7
Jun-20-08  Marco65: Every QGD player knows a similar trick: 1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. Bg5 Nbd7 5. cxd5 exd5 6. Nxd5? Nxd5! 7. Bxd8 Bb4+

but maybe a player of the English can fall into the trap
