Nov-05-04  Dudley: Great trap in the Baltic, also called the Grau defense by Seirawan. This is an unorthodox approach by Black which seems really easy to play.
Nov-05-04  solstys: That is a great move. I completely missed it.
Nov-05-04  Dave Murray: I saw the idea, but my distraction was 9. ...Qc6 :(, not seeing 10. b5

  cu8sfan: Most of this week's traps (4 out of 5) came from 1.d4 openings. Is this coincidence or are there just more traps in closed games? Or are the ones in open games too well known?
Nov-05-04  resty: Easy one.
Nov-05-04  resty: This is Reicher's only win in chessgames.com's database.
Nov-05-04  FryGuy1013: Dave Murray: doesn't 9. ...Qc6 10. b5 Nc2 11. Qxc2 Qxc2 win?
Nov-05-04  Snow Man: Ha! (!)

On 9. ...Qc6 10. Qxc6! guarding the c2 square and so forcing 10...Nxc6, White appears to avoid major disaster.

  mahmoudkubba: As one opinion, white best move on 8 was NxN but he did not played it. I do not know why..some times in chess the moves r forcable???
Nov-05-04  Chesspatch: really crisp, gotta remember this line
Nov-05-04  Bluelapis: It's a great idea. White's queen is trapped.
Nov-05-04  guyk: y not b5
a bit simpler no?
Nov-05-04  MoonlitKnight: After b5, white has Qd1.
Nov-05-04  acirce: 8..b5?? 9.Qa6+ winning a piece
Nov-05-04  patzer2: The alternative 3. Nc3 enhances development, avoids Black's opening trap and has given White good results according to the Opening Explorer.
Nov-05-04  patzer2: C Bielicki vs J Tossutti, 2004, featuring 3. Nc3, may be of interest (I found the final position after 39. Re3! amusing).
Nov-05-04  Saruman: Way to go 5 secs! (This position cannot be found in Winning Chess Tactics).
Nov-05-04  The Backward Pawn: I was thinking 8...b5 would that also work, the queen gets a check at a6 but it doesnt go anywhere

  kevin86: I had the right idea,but the wrong piece-my move was b4,but of course white escapes by 9♕d1. Of course,the text move prevents the queen retreat by 9...♘xf3+ followed by ♖xd1-winning queen for rook.There is no escape,except on penalty of mate.
Nov-05-04  patzer2: <kevin 86> Did you mean 8...b5? If so, see <acirce>'s post above.
Nov-05-04  Knight13: I thought it was 8... Nc2+. But that would be bad. Lots of openings' traps and zaps this week.
Nov-05-04  EXIDE: Tricky!! What gives the hint is that white Queen needs to stay on the diagonal to prevent Nc2+ checkmate.
May-02-13  RookFile: Blink and you'll miss this game.

  FSR: The passive queen sac followed by a knight mate on c2/c7 is reminiscent of Yermolinsky vs E Tate, 2001.
