    That wasn't black's only not-so-wise move Wink 6... e4, giving up a pawn, 7... Nf4, wasting another move with an already developed piece, and of course 9... Bg4?? allowing mate in one are all not-so-great moves Tongue out

    Yeah, that's one of those games where your opposition didn't even notice what was developing on the other side of the board.  He was probably thinking about his own play (not perfect) rather than responding to yours.

    It's a very common trick and has been played numerous times before. I can't give an exact example of this trick, but it's kind of a combination of two of the traps in the Caro-Kann and Petroff:

    They are both very good strategies. i have been playing for several years now and am finally reassesing my game and learning more about classic thought patterns. This site really helps.

    Phobetor -- in your second example, what if black pushed his knight forward to g3 after white pulled out his queen? the discovered check is still possible, but at best white will only swap queens... (btw, "drawish type players" is a cute moniker)

    If black plays 4... Ng3, then indeed 5. Nc6+ doesn't work. But white can just play 5. hxg3 and win a piece Wink

    he could have taken your knight with his knight on move5 and he would be up a knight as the knight protects the bishop
