  bright1: Doesn't 9. Nc3 lose a piece after Bg4?

After the queen moves, c6xb5 can be played.

  TheAlchemist: <bright1> You are right, 9.Nc3 loses. I'm not sure how both players managed to miss it. I hope you don't feel neglected, sometimes posts simply get overlooked.

  bright1: <The Alchemist> It's okay. Thanks for the reply.

I guess 9. Bd3 or 9. h3 have to be played. I thought I was missing a tactical trick somehow.

Well, I can...unfortunately the piece-dropping part at move 9, rather than the mating combination at the end.

  al wazir: After 9...Bg4, the outcome isn't totally clear: 10. Nd5 Bxf3 (10...Nxd5 11. Qxd5 Qxb5 12. Qxf7+ Kd8 13. d3) 11. Nxb6 axb6 12. Nxf3 cxb5 13. Nxe5. White has two ♙s for the piece, and black's doubled ♙s on the b-file are no asset.
