  tpstar: How would Black respond to 9. f3 instead? Thank you.
Aug-28-04  acirce: <tpstar> 9..Nxd4 10.Bxd7+ Kxd7 11.fxe4 (11.Qxd4?? Bc5) and now 11..Qh4 looks effective enough (haven't checked 11..Bxh2+)

  tpstar: <acirce> Thank you very much! Never even considered 10 ... Kxd7! breaking the pin and allowing the Bc5 trick to work. That's a good tip, since I usually wimp out with 8 ... Be7 instead.
Aug-28-04  ConLaMismaMano: What about 9.f3 Bxh2+ 10.Kxh2 Qh4+ 11.Kg1 Qf2+ 12.Kh1 Nxd4? I don't have a chess board in front of me (im not home) so i can't check it appropiately. While im finishing my post i just noticed acirce mentioned Bxh2+, maybe you can help me out here.
Aug-28-04  clocked: <ConLaMismaMano> you line nearly works. 13.Bxd7+ Kxd7 14.fxe4 Nxc2 15.Rf1 Qh4+ 16.Kg1 Nxa1 17.Rxf7+ Kc8 18.Bf4 of course black can just play 12...Qh4+ etc or 12...0-0-0, but there is no need as <acirce>'s line is strong for black
May-25-06  manilishi: What about 9 Bxc6 bxc6 10 f3? How does black respond?

  pawn to QB4: Hi manilishi - I see that White didn't dare try the line against one of our colleagues: L Van Rey vs G Welling, 1976. Must have thought 10...Qh4 gave too strong an attack.
