6...g6. This attempt to develop the Bishop at g7 does not fit in with the system of defense initiated by 3...d6. Better is 6...Be7 7.Re1 exd4 8.Nxd4 0-0 9.Bxc6 bxc6 10.b3 d5.

If 8...dxe5 9.Qxd8+ Rxd8 10.Nxe5 Nxe4 (10...Bxe4 11.Bg5 Be7 12.Rfe1 wins) 11.Nxc6 Nxc3 12.Re1+ Kd7 13.Nxd8 wins for White.

If 9...Nxd6 10.Qd4 is decisive.

On 14...Kxd6 15.Nxf7+ wins Black\'s Queen.

16...Bd6 to prevent White from playing 17.Nxf7 followed by Queening the Pawn. If instead 16...c6 17.Bf4 cxd5 18.Nc6# mates nicely.

A beautiful long-range mate!

Black has been checkmated.

Eagerly await Ruy Lopez Trap20, LayZ. I can\'t say I am exactly memorising all of these traps, but if I am not mistaken they are improving my general approach and replies to out-of-the-book deviations. = D
