Miniature of the Month - September 2013

This whole game looks like an opening trap, but surprisingly it isn't. Sure Black plays some dodgy moves, but the only previous game to reach move 10 ended in a draw (albeit between a couple of 2000 rated players). Black can still hang on if he plays 10 ... Qa5+, but 10. ... Na6 really does lose.
(Once again, thanks to Chesstoday for sourcing the game)
