    Black retakes with the pawn, he loses his queen. He retakes with the king, he dies.

    Most dragon folk won't let you play this on them anymore, they'll play d6, which forces you to play f3. Na5 gets a ? these days, but make no mistake Samuel Reshevsky was no patzer and he played it. Too bad he played it against a fully operational Bobby Fischer.

    A few months before the Fischer game Leonard Shamkovitch
    fell into the same trap and resigned.

    G.Bastrikov - L. Shamkovich Russia 1958

    1.e4 c5 2.Ne2 Nc6 3.Nbc3 g6 4.d4 cxd4 5.Nxd4 Bg7 6.Be3 Nf6
    7.Bc4 0-0 8.Bb3 Na5 9.e5 Ne8 10.Bxf7+ Kxf7 11.Ne6 1-0



    Sammy played on.

    R.Fischer - S.Reshevsky. New York 1958



    On here it has apeared twice. Once by No1.

    no1marauder - 99GSX RHP 2004




    Finally some 2230 player missed 10.Bxf7+ as White and lost.
    You have to know your classics.

    10.exf6 Nxa1 11.fxg7 Kxg7 12.Qxa1 and black's development is a joke.
