Jun-07-04  tomdg: 9 ... bxc6 would be a lot better than 9 ... Nf6; but 6 Bxf7 is still brilliant and too good a response to 5 ... Nxe4.
Oct-22-04  uzeromay: 9...Qe8. Now, you move.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: In the spirit of the World Championship and the Olympiad, I offer you a draw. Looks like black should have played 9...Qe8.
Mar-24-08  The Chess Express: 9. Nxc6 Qe8 10. Qe5+ Qxe5 11. Nxe5 Bc5 12. 0-0 Re8 13. Bb6 Nd3 14. Re1 d6 15. Be3 looks slightly better for black due to the ♗'s and extra ♙ center

  GrahamClayton: An interesting example of 2 successive "zwischenzug" (intermediate) moves.

Black played 9...♘f6, hoping to win a piece by dc6 after the White Queen moves. However, the Black Queen is under attack by the White Knight, so White counters with his own zwischenzug 10.♗h6+.
After 10...♔h6 11.♕d2+, White has withdrawn his Queen to safety, and can play 12.♘d8, hence Black's resignation.
