Jun-04-10  smitha1: White had no clue what hit him: one moment he is calmly developing a piece, the next moment Black plunks an unprotected Bishop in front of the Queen with a big smug grin. Game over...

Far better for White is 10. Bd3 or 10. g3, but White was completely oblivious. What caused White's downfall was therefore an absolute absence of any sense of danger.

So, smart people of CG: how does one develop the sixth sense that something mean is afoot?
