May-05-05  Stefan Lukke: get a similar trap in the Caro-Kann.
May-05-05  WorldChampeen: I don't follow the word deflections that one user uses here a lot, but I sure know what a smothered mate is!
May-05-05  azaris: It is a little known fact that playing games like this from the black side could see your chess license permanently revoked in the former Soviet Union.
Oct-06-05  AlexanderMorphy: Cornell is on drugs! Smothered mate in 6!? is there a shorter game in this database?

  FSR: 1...c5 looks like a typo. I suspect it was really 1...c6 and this was the standard Caro-Kann trap. Otherwise, Black would presumably have grabbed the free White pawn on d4 earlier.

  sea7kenp: So what do you call 5 ... Ngf6? A fatal Development move? Developing into Mate?
