Oct-23-03  Lawrence: Oh my goodness gracious me! Look what happens after 10.Ne6+.
Oct-23-03  Chris00nj: If 9...Be7, 10. Bxe7 Qxe7 11. e6! wins the knight.

If 8...Nfd7, 9. e6 fxe6 10. Nxe6 looks nice for white.

Oct-25-03  SicilianDragon: Most experienced players dodge this entirely by playing 6...Nc6 or 6...Nbd7
Aug-08-04  who: Chris if 9.Be7 Qxg4 and wins the knight straight out
Sep-30-04  tacticsjokerxxx: if 9. -♗e7 then i'd intuitively play 10. e6 (-fxe6 11. 0-0) .. looks good

anyway this was a nice trap, you learn something new about the dragon of sicily every day.

Jan-05-06  Emma: the only way to avoid disaster after 7 e5 against the Lavenfish attack is: instead of 7... fxe5?, ...Nh5! If white follows up with 8 g4? ....Nxf4! (Bxf4... dxe5)
Mar-17-06  McCool: What about 9. ..Nc6? Or was it a touch move game.
May-24-06  DeepBlade: Id would d0 this

11.Ne5+ Bxe6 12.Qxd8#
11.Ne5+ fxe6 12.Qxd8+ Kf7 Qxh1/0-0+

Jun-23-06  Far1ey: <Chris00nj> No. 9...Be7 leads to QxG4 as simple as that...
Jul-20-06  Rocafella: 8.Nd7?
Mar-01-07  WarmasterKron: <McCool> 9...Nc6 10.Nxc6 bxc6 11.Bxc6+ Bd7 and Black loses the exchange and a pawn (i.e. a piece).
Feb-15-09  swarmoflocusts: "<McCool> 9...Nc6 10.Nxc6 bxc6 11.Bxc6+ Bd7 and Black loses the exchange and a pawn (i.e. a piece)."

According to Fritz, 9...Nc6 is in fact the only playable move from the position after 9.Bb5+. After 9...Nc6 10.Nxc6 Qxd1+, white has only a small advantage. However, even after 10...bxc6 11.Bxc6+ Bd7 12.Bxa8 Qxa8, Fritz considers the position to be only about a pawn's advantage to white. Black can win back the pawn (e5), and has the two bishops, open files on the queenside, etc. The game is by no means over.
