Mar-11-04  drukenknight: Has anybody seen this trap out of Q.Indian? the best way to stop it seems to be 4...d5 but you'd be suprised how many people miss it. In this game, either 5 Bxf7+ or 5 Qf3 would be the way to go. 5 Bxf7+ wins the exchange after Bxf7 6 Nxf7 Kxf7 7 Qf3+ but it's far from over.

5 h4 here is interesting but 5...e6 seems adequate.
