    This isn't really a puzzle, more like opening knowledge and preparation. It's the Tarrash trap in the Steinitz variation of the Ruy Lopez where black's last move was 7... 0-0?

    the worst puzzle ever !!! disapointed !! :/

    To me, Black lost when he played Rd5 at the end. Other than that, White might have an advantage, but this is by no means a forced series of moves.

    it is a game of tarrash and an extra ordinary trap introduced by him ...

    Yes, it's an opening trap (by Tarrasch). Ruy Lopez (Spanish) is really rich of traps. (Honest, I had to play the solution because I was too lazzy for "a long calculation" this morning. Or am I simply tired at the end of the year?)

    Wow, didn't think I'd get to the end !......

    You people should realize that getting onto the first page isn't such an achievement. 

    OT: This one was quite challenge ... well, it is morning after all.
