May-02-03  Bears092: I've played this exact game with black before... very satisfying...
Nov-18-04  Knezh: Why not 10. Bc4?
Nov-18-04  aw1988: 10. Bc4 is much better than the game continuation of 10. Nxc7??, and is decisive.

I agree with this, <Knezh>.

10. ♗c4 ♕f7 11. b3 b5 12. ♘g5 bc 13. ♘xf7 ♔xf7 14. 0-0 and White has a queen and two pawns for three minor pieces, with an exposed Black king. I think White should win.

  Phony Benoni: And that, boys and girls is why we deliver spite checks.
May-05-18  Monocle: This game is hilarious.

You know that scene that's always in TV shows and movies - the one where two supposedly good players are playing, and one of them makes a move and looks all smug like "get out of that one", and the other replies with an immediate "checkmate"?

It's generally a stupid scene, because good players aren't in the habit of overlooking mate in one. Because TV writers typically aren't chess players, it's usually meant to indicate that the player doing the checkmate is more crafty, when in actual fact all it indicates is a beginner-level oversight by the opponent.

But, here we have an actual example. It's a shame that the only thing preserved of this game is the scoresheet, and not the look on White's face after 10... Bb4#.

  sea7kenp: <Phony Benoni>: Spite Double-Check? Spite Mate? :-)
Feb-02-20  kereru: The major flaw of this game of course is that though it sets this amusing trap, 9...Qe8? actually loses to 10.Bc4. Black is ok after 9...Bb4+! 10.c3 Qe7, in fact it is doubtful whether white can justify the piece sac.
