Mar-22-04  Egghead: The black queen has 11 flight squares, and 10 of them are already covered. And the 11th isn't much better: 11. ... Qh5 12.Ng5 Qh4 13.g3 Qh6 14.Nxe6 Qxh3 15.Nxf8.
Nov-27-05  Chopin: What a horrible blunder! Poor Yuri.

  keypusher: What's especially demonic about this trap is that the innocent-looking 10. h3 sets it up.
Dec-19-08  sancaka: What happens if white 10.Na4 right away, without 10.h3 first?
Feb-21-09  TheTamale: My guess is that it prevents the natural 10) ... Bg4. Black moves the bishop to d6 instead, blocking a path of escape for the queen (via h5, d5, d6, etc).
Nov-27-12  shakman: 10. Na4 lets queen escape...
10.... Qh5
11.Ng5 Bg4

Be6 was blunder....there is another game in which this blunder was avoided...V Kuporosov vs B Abrashkin, 2002
