  tpstar: Here's a cute trap for all NI faithful in da house. First, answer 4. Bg5 with 4 ... c5. Second, if 5. e3!? then play 5 ... Qa5. Third, after 6. Rc1?! pounce with 6 ... Ne4. Fourth, should White goof by playing the routine 7. Nf3?? then win a piece with 7 ... Nxg5 8. Nxg5 cd 0-1. Game, Set and Match.
