Still not found that game and still not solved your problem
you set in The Problemists Club
. (it is hard).
Actually the best way to set that trap is 4.Be2
leaving free h3 for the a1 Rook to swing fro a1-a3-h3. And this is
really explained and analysed in detail in Rampant Chess
the Aagaard - Ubilava game.
Your reaction to 4.h3 is the designed response to such a move.
My note after 4.h3! is:
"They don't like it up 'em." ( Corporal Jones in Dad's Army).
Adding the good guys think it's an insult to their manhood when you
set such a trap.
Glad some of you like the Youtube thing. The idea of doing a 5 move
draw simply appealed and it did actually happen.
There is a Glasgow player from the early 80's who twice caught
people with this trap and both times as white he went onto to lose.
