Jul-28-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: After 11...Qc6, 12.Be3 wins - pinning Q & R. Lovely opening trap.

  Honza Cervenka: 9...Qc7 was a bit superficial. After 10.Nd4! black faces a problem how to get the Pawn back as immediate 10...Bxc5?? loses outright. Of course, 10...Bb7 11.Nxc6 Bxc6 12.b4 is bad for black. relatively best would have been 10...b4 11.Nxc6 (11.Bf3 Bb7) 12.Nb4 Qxc5 though white is still clearly better.
