Our next trap also came about from the Ruy Lopez opening.

11...Qd7? One of those \"obvious\" moves which lose on the spot. Black should play 11...Nxe5 with good attackig chances.

12...fxe6 is no better, for after 13.Rxe4, Black\'s Queen pawn is still pinned, though in a different way.

13.Rxe4 Black\'s queen pawn is pinned, and dares not capture. Simple as this trap may appear to be, it is worthy of note that Dr. Tarrasch sprung it successfully on such masters as Zukertort and Gunsberg.

In case anyone doubts it, here is Dr Tarrasch\'s first success with the trap:

Siegbert Tarrasch vs Johannes Zukertort
DSB-Kongress 1887

... and here, three years later, is the trap\'s second outing:

Siegbert Tarrasch vs Isidor Gunsberg
Manchester 1890

Fascinating.
