  Benzol: 9...♘f6 or 9...f6 might have been better choices than 9...♕d5.

  whiteshark: Black is (probably) the Austrian <Franz Auer>, (1918–1983).

  An Englishman: Good Evening: 4...Bf5?!; 5.Ng3,Bg6?(Bg4 ); 6.h4! is a known trap in the Caro-Kann with a huge success rate for White.

  perfidious: The Wurm turned on Black in short order after his dubious play.

  piltdown man: Let's see you wurm your way out of THIS one.

  Honza Cervenka: Well known trap, and real can of worms for black...
Jul-14-15  rogl: I've played this a few times as white. Instead of 9. Qf3 I've played 9. Bc4. Black's position is not pretty after that.
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: A quick knockout!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Once: An amusing final position. Black can choose which rook he wants to lose.
Jul-14-15  Rookiepawn: 9... Nf6
10 Bc4 e6
11 Ne4 Be7
11 d4 ...

I think this looks gloomy for Black, right?
