May-27-05  chesswonders: <>, this should read 7. ♘d6 #
Mar-17-06  McCool: This is similar to Granter vs Haily, 1984. Even the mistake is the same. <chesswonders> (no pun intended)
Jun-09-06  CapablancaFan: 6...Nge7?? What the...Simple 6...d6 would have been sufficient.
Jun-08-07  t3hPolak: Yikes. This is a good example of when you don't look ahead for every move.
Jun-08-07  Wolfgang01: One of many opening-traps and one of the reasons to learn about openings.
Jun-08-07  jellyace: After Black's sixth move he/she must have thought, "Oops!"
Dec-29-21  JimmyVermeer: Would be a she, as the name is feminized.
Dec-29-21  Granny O Doul: 6...Nge7: "Strategically impeccable but tactically flawed".
