  Gilmoy: Book trap? 9.Bb5 is a cute way to shield b2. White threatens 10.Nf5 collecting the B (11.Nxg7+ Kf8? 12.Bh6 oh my). 9..Bd7 is no help, so 9..Nd7 to nip that line (10.Nf5? Bxc3+ and Qxb5). But it help-mates his Q! 10.Nd5 Qd8?? 11.Bxc6 untouchable: bxc6 12.Nxc6 would make U12s and grown men cry alike:
