1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 g6 5.Nc3 Bg7 6.Be3 Nf6 7.Bc4 Qa5 8.f3?
But Foisor, who knows this trap, surely (?), plays 8...a6.
Then today Krush plays the O'Kelly, which she does occasionally, and has played in prominent games in the US Women's before. The whole point of the O'Kelly is that with 2... a6, you deprive the white knight on d4 of the b5 square after you play ...e5:
1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 a6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 e5
black continues with moves like ...Bb4 and ...0-0 and ...d5
White is supposed to play 3.c3 or 3. Nc3. Again, I don't play this for either side. But Tsagaan, despite having a whole rest day to prepare, goes right into the bad lines. What's going on?
In the fried food equivalent, fried balls of butter: "balls of butter, dipped in dough and cooked in a vat of boiling oil. Fried butter, in other words. The balls were dusted with a thin coat of powdered sugar. When bitten, they collapsed with an unctuous squelch."
finally, I enjoyed this article from last week's economist on the Obama administration's relations with Europe.
