  patzer2: After black's 12. ..Ng4!?, white makes the mistake of playing what he thinks is a "typical" sicilian combination with 13. Nd5. Unfortunately for white, Kaufman has set a trap and refutes the "combination" and wins a piece with a neat counter attack. See moves 12 to 16 for this neat sequence.
